ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

DATES & TIMES

8 DECEMBER 2019 - 8 MARCH 2020

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

Hannah Joynt is a contemporary drawing practitioner who works in a range of media, processes and scales. Jane Venis a musician, performance artist and maker of sculptural musical instruments. The collaboration, Drawn to Sound is a performance project in which they address the question “How do we collaborate successfully with two very different creative practices in order to explore new territories within a contemporary context?”

Over three days, Jane plays a range of instruments including handmade works in an improvisational way and Hannah responds to the music interpreting the sound as large-scale drawings. These resulting artworks will be displayed as a key part of the exhibition. Also featured are videos of live performances, drawings and sound works made in their recent arts residency in Portugal. The Documentary Drawn to Sound will also be launched at the exhibition.

Live Art Creation | 4 – 6 December | 2 – 4pm
