ART NIGHT 2017
Saturday 1 July 6pm – 4am and Sunday 2 July 12noon – 6pm – ONLY
Anne Hardy presents a new large scale FIELD work – an immersive installation that incorporates sculptural structures, objects, colour, light, and audio in the former headquarters of the Nicholls & Clarke showrooms.
Hardy has collected sounds from the vicinity of the building, often using objects found on the street to generate noises in the locations where she finds them – sliding a steel rod against a metal fence, or dropping found pieces of concrete into a hole. Composed into an abstract score the resulting audio is coupled with a delicate assembly of objects, scored light and structures which is choreographed around the space, and proposes the work as a living object that you enter into. The balance and sensuality of the components create a familiar yet disorienting environment.
Falling and Walking (phhhhhhhhhhh phossshhhhh crrhhhhzzz mn huaooogh) is co-commissioned by ArtNight and The Contemporary Art Society, the work will join the permanent collection at Leeds City Art Gallery where it will be exhibited in late 2018.
