Sterly is exploring the world of books and reading; what it means to move away from those beautiful and physical objects, from the visual beauty to the sounds, the smells and the textures that are lost.


“The tactile nature of books creates a sensual response that surpasses reactions to digital equivalents”.

This exhibition will include an installation that considers these ideas, alongside a series of prints and a performance of the 'Sound Book Project' at the opening event.

‘Sound Book Project’ is a group of collaborating artists and musicians who use books as instruments. Interacting with books in a new and surprising ways: wound, sprung, strummed, slapped and thrown - a soundscape will evolve around the performers.

Opening event 16:00 on Saturday 30 January, join us for a free performance – all are welcome!
