the lexi cinema and gallery, kensal rise, london

exhibition: 11th october – 20th november 2017

body of work, created specifically for the lexi gallery space, is a response to selected locations within a one mile radius of the building.

a series of walks were conducted during a one month period prior to the exhibition, collecting field recordings and photographs. the walks were considered a sort of ‘location hunt’ for something unknown, re-imagining empty streets as stages for a potential happenings or narratives.

the patterns and rhythms unique to the visual and sonic landscape of the area were documented.

the work culminated in a bespoke soundscape for the interior of the cinema's foyer that guests could experience whilst passing through the space. a series of prints were also created which can be found here via the orders page.
