Seed Potential (2017) Annabel Duggleby

Art for the Environment

  • 26 January — 18 March 2018 *on now

Art for the Environment, curated by Camilla Palestra, will present work from six artists with practices that explore the nature of human impact on our environment. Following the celebrated international residency programme Art for the Environment (AER) – set up by acclaimed artist Professor Lucy Orta at the University of the Arts London (UAL) – the exhibition will, for the first time, present a selection of work created from past residencies, including film, sound and interactive installation, at the Nunnery Gallery, London.

Established in 2015, the AER programme invites artists and designers to explore concerns that define the twenty-first century – including biodiversity, environmental sustainability, social economy and human rights – and through artistic practice, envision a world of tomorrow. The exhibition sees six past AER residents combine to create a powerful presentation that probes our preconceptions and concerns around the environment, accompanied by an events programme that includes recycling workshops, panel discussions and a field-recording workshop in the Olympic Park.

Exhibiting artists, followed by their AER residency hosts are: Annabel Duggleby (Hauser & Wirth, Somerset 2017, UK); Magz Hall (Yorkshire Sculpture Park 2015, UK); Nana Maiolini (Joya: arte + ecología 2016, Spain); Noemi Niederhauser (Fondazione Berengo Murano, Venice 2015, Italy); Matt Parker (Joya: arte + ecología 2016, Spain); and Matteo Valerio (Fondazione Zegna 2016, Italy).

Art for the Environment is being developed with the support of University of the Arts London, Centre for Sustainable Fashion and Arts Council England.

Field-recording workshop in the Olympic Park with Matt Parker

  • 3 March 2018 10am-1pm

Join Art for the Environment artist Matt Parker on a sonic journey through the Olympic Park, using techniques including field-recording and meditation as a way to engage with our surroundings and environment.

The workshop will begin with a warmup and short meditation based on the Deep Listening exercises of Pauline Oliveros, led by artist Artur Vidal. Participants will then enjoy a mindful walk to the Olympic Park, taking part in the 'Walking with Crickets' exercise designed by sound artist Lisa Hall. At the park participants will use field-recorders to explore their surrounding environment, listening to pre-recorded sounds and capturing their own unique sounds to share with the group later. Once regrouped, visitors will be able to listen to sounds of fish and algae in the pond through a hydrophone. The workshop will close with a group discussion and sharing session, and a final Sonic Meditation.

The workshop will be run by four CRiSAP researchers: Kate Carr, Lisa Hall, Matt Parker and Artur Vidal. All ages and families are welcome.
