Listening brings a group of international artists together to interrogate the act of listening in contemporary art. This pioneering exhibition examines the crossover between the visual and the sonic and their complex relationships to the senses.
Sam Belinfante, winner of the Hayward Touring Curatorial Open 2014, has selected new and existing work, including drawings, sculpture, prints and video, and works in the exhibition range dramatically in duration from less than a second to six hours. Visitors can hear a clap of thunder that has been stretched in duration and aurally dissected, recreated by musicians and morphed back into a thunderclap; eavesdrop on a cabin in a forest and listen to the almost inaudible sound of a dying star.
Artists include: Laurie Anderson, Ed Atkins, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Mikhail Karikis, Ragnar Kjartansson, Lina Lapelyte, Christian Marclay, Haroon Mirza, Max Neuhaus, Katie Paterson, Amalia Pica, Laure Prouvost, Hannah Rickards, Prem Sahib, Anri Sala, Imogen Stidworthy and Carey Young.
