Sound and Radio Artist exhibiting at Jerwood Open Forest
Canterbury Christ Church University’s Sound and Radio Artist Dr Magz Hall has had her work selected to exhibit at the Jerwood Open Forest exhibition.
The exhibition, now in its second edition, seeks to contribute to a national conversation about how contemporary visual artists engage with the environment.
Dr Hall, who is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Media, Art and Design, has developed a radiophonic installation, which looks like a log cabin, bringing together physical space, the radiophonic ether and the elusive temporality of dreams. More simply, it is a space where visitors can sit, relax and listen to people’s dreams. The installation will take place at Bedgebury Pinetum, which has some of the tallest pine trees in Kent and other Grand Firs, used in the 1920s as antenna by the US army.
The Jerwood Open Forest exhibition, in partnership with the Forest Commission England, will take place between Wednesday 2 November and Sunday 11 December. More information can be found on the Jerwood Open Forest website. London Live news reported on the exhibition and interview Dr Hall about her piece, watch the video.
