Hanover Project

Location:

Preston, Lancashire

Hanover Project is an art Gallery situated in Preston. My main roles as an intern was to work alongside professional artists and the Hanover steering group, co-ordinating various projects, activities and on going office duties. This intern also involved an opportunity to participate in the daily functions of the arts marketing and press operation gaining a wide range of experience within this area. Promoting and networking was an essential part of the role which enabled me to converse with others with similar interests, increasing Hanover Projects fan base. It was also essential to assist with mailing list development, information distribution and distribution research, maintaining media lists, contributing to social media and digital campaigns, sending out press and listings information and updating the Hanover Project website.

Opening Night Performance, Förstå [Understand] by Karin Bergström & Mat Gregory

This exhibition presents seven artworks, framed in the context of an international exchange that explores an ongoing discourse around deadpan aesthetics and deadpan humour. This project, devised and initiated by Heidi Hove and Jonn Herschend, can be likened to a sort of deadpan relay, as artists from one country are invited to respond to artworks made by artists from another. When complete, the project will culminate in a large exhibition that showcases all contributions to the Deadpan Exchange. This evaluative overview will raise key questions about the theme and how it has been interpreted culturally, aesthetically and conceptually by those selected. The artists presented in this exhibition are responding to the works created by seven artists from Lithuania, who exhibited in Deadpan Exchange VII in Hanover Project, Preston 15 months proir.

Site and Sound: Acousmatic Spaces and Sonic Environments

Role:

Artist

Location:

Hanover Project, Preston

Press Release: 

Site and Sound: Acousmatic Spaces and Sonic Environments 13.01.14 – 30.01.14

Hanover Project, Hanover Building, Bhailok Street, University of Central Lancashire, Preston, PR1 7HE

Opening Hours: 13th - 30th January, 10am - 5pm
Closing Event: 28th January, 5pm - 7pm

Site and Sound: Acousmatic Spaces and Sonic Environments is an exhibition which explores the relationship between acoustic space and physical space, interrogating perceptions of location, environment and site through sound.

Each of the works featured in the exhibition represents a close engagement with the role played by sounds in defining how a given place or moment in time might be experienced, remembered or perceived. Through processes of field recording, improvisation and experimental composition, selected works recontextualise and respond to specific locations, provoking insights of a philosophical, intellectual and existential nature into the experience of occupying and imagining such spaces.

Key works in the exhibition also explore the potential of sound to alter perceptions and experiences of a physical space, creating new environments through the installation of sonic material. Defined by Richard Kostelanetz as an 'artistically enhanced' space, acoustic environments of this kind give the site, 'an esthetic character that it would not otherwise have ...thanks to what the artist does, the space itself becomes a surrounding work of art.'

Site and Sound: Acousmatic Spaces and Sonic Environments will feature the work of artists including David Toop, Leanne Cunningham, Lianray Pienaar, John J. Campbell, Owl Project, Colin Fallows, Paul Rooney, Richard Skelton and Eimer Birkbeck.

We look forward to seeing you at Hanover Project.

Existing or coming before in time, order, or importance...

Artists are questioning and exploring photography as a research tool for developing work.

Presented is a selection of work that explores the relationship between 6 artists using photography as a starting point from which further work is developed.

The work demonstrates the pre existence of an initial 'happening' that is no longer a necessity for the future project outcome.The photographs displayed will no longer be visible in the outcome of each individual's project, however will be extant in the context of process. 

This black and white photography is a necessary by-product of another outcome, but for the purpose of Prior, should be read as the outcome or as a series of notes.
