Falling and Walking (phhhhhhhhhhh phossshhhhh crrhhhhzzz mn huaooogh) – solo exhibition – ART NIGHT 2017
Sculptural installation with audio
1st July 6:00PM till 4:00AM and 2nd July 12:00 Noon till 6:00PM
Anne Hardy presented a new large scale FIELD work – an immersive installation incorporating sculptural structures, objects, colour, light, and audio in the former headquarters of the Nicholls & Clarke showrooms.
Hardy collected sounds from the vicinity of the building, often using objects found on the street to generate noises in the locations where she finds them – sliding a steel rod against a metal fence, or dropping found pieces of concrete into a hole. Composed into an abstract score the resulting audio was coupled with a delicate assembly of objects, scored light and structures, choreographed around the space and proposing the work as a living object that you enter into. The balance and sensuality of the components created a familiar yet disorienting environment.
Falling and Walking (phhhhhhhhhhh phossshhhhh crrhhhhzzz mn huaooogh) was co-commissioned by ArtNight and The Contemporary Art Society, the work will join the permanent collection of a museum in the UK where it will be exhibited in late 2018.
