LIVING SOUND is the first solo exhibition of artist and composer Emily Peasgood. The exhibition brings together several recent works as well as a new commission inspired by the social and cultural history of the Sidney Cooper Gallery. The main gallery space will be dominated by Requiem for Crossbones, an interactive, site-specific sound installation, choral work and series of sculptures, originally commissioned for the 2018 Merge Festival in London’s Southbank. Sidney Cooper’s Living Room is a newly commissioned sound installation created to celebrate the history of the gallery since it was founded 150 years ago. In the small ground floor front room—part of Thomas Sidney Cooper’s childhood home— the living room will be recreated into an interactive tableau featuring the recorded voices of local people sharing memories and stories about the gallery and the community that has arisen around it. Emily Peasgood (born in Grimsby) is an award-winning composer and artist. From interactive sound works for galleries and public spaces to intimate installations and large-scale community projects, her work uses intricate sound and technology design to focus on creating a connection between people and locations that have become forgotten and unvalued, often rooted in political realities.
