Sidney Cooper Gallery has invited artist Nicola Singh to create City Stir, a new exhibition coinciding with our yearly festival of experimental music, Wintersound. Singh’s work will include live performance, audio recordings, a series of sculptural objects and a large-scale installation using Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven’s poem ‘Appalling Heart’ (1920) as a starting point. Collaborating with a cast of female artists and musicians, Singh developed choreographies, palettes of music-making, and costumes in response to the poem before realising a group performance across a number of urban and rural spaces. The traces of the original performance find a disembodied and lingering new context in the gallery.
