the dark would exhibition
The Dark Would exhibition runs from Saturday 7 December 2013 - Friday 24 January 2014 at Summerhall, Edinburgh, EH9 1PL.
Curated by Philip Davenport, and growing from the language art anthology of the same name released earlier this year that he edited, The Dark Would has its public launch at 7pm Friday 6 December 2013. Free entry.
The exhibition contains work from Jenny Holzer, Richard Long, Susan Hiller, Richard Wentworth, Simon Patterson, Tony Lopez, Sarah Sanders (who I understand is performing live at the opening on 6 December), Caroline Bergvall, Erica Brum, Ron Silliman, Mike Chavez Dawson and many more.
Included in the exhibition is my version of Long Lankin, a ten minute sound piece based on the folk ballad of the same name. Various different sung arrangements succeed and overlap each other, while extended vocal technique and field recordings create sometimes troubling textures and atmospheres.
