new book out from if p then q books

On 23rd September, editor James Davies of if p then q books published a new book of mine. At Sounds Like: 3 Projects brings together three texts that have elements of performance, sound and procedure. The material has been developed in different ways over some years, and parts have been presented as performance scores, within work for radio, and as visual publications. A sample of the text, more information and a link to order the book are here on the if p then q website.

practice documentation in new online research forum

I have work included in a newly launched research sharing forum, conceived and co-organised by Emma Cocker, Alexander Damianisch, Cordula  Daus and Lena Séraphin. Practice Sharing is an online presentation of expanded approaches to language-based practice within the field of artistic research. Over  70 individuals and collaborations are included in this first ‘sharing’: See https://www.researchcatalogue.net/view/835089/1019933/6949

The intent has been to reflect on how language-based artistic research is practised in its diversity rather than to define or determine. Contributors were invited to respond to an open ‘call’ outlining their specific approach with one or two examples from their own artistic- or practice-based research — focusing on specific language-based ‘practices’.

The 70 chosen submissions have been ordered alphabetically such that the reader may search by name or explore each contribution within the immediate vicinity of other contributions to allow for chance acquaintances, unexpected resonances and aleatory connections.

review / response to SLANT Voiceworks on Tentacular

My response to the second event in SLANT’s Voiceworks project is one of three now up on Tentacular magazine at https://www.tentacularmag.com/elsewhere-blog/voiceworks-responses. I write briefly about work by Emma Bennett, Anamaria Barduli, and Kinga Tóth. Originally planned as live events at Iklectik in Lambeth, the works were streamed online in September 2020.

What Time is Art? workshop for CAMP

On 24th and 26th August 2020, I will run a two-part online workshop as part of the PITCH programme of events for CAMP (Contemporary Art Membership Plymouth) .

What Time is Art? is an investigation of time in (y)our art practice. Over two 2-hour sessions we will discuss ideas of time in relation to art practice(s). The sessions will address how a story of making is told, how telling it locates it in time, and how the told story endures or is lost.

Booking is via the CAMP website.
