Save Event: Dark Matter Gushes From The Mouth Into The Open Air

People who have saved this event:


Latent gurgles, murmurs rising... a tone begins in the depths of the belly and strives in the throat before escaping – a burst of vocal dark matter. Writers Jennifer Boyd and Amy Pettifer curate a one-off programme of sound and voice based works for an hour of listening in the deep dark.


Just as the genesis of the Laboratory of Dark Matters' work began with nine artists travelling 1100m below ground to a dark matter research facility on the North East coast of England, this programme explores the transformations, mutations and possibilities that are generated in ultra-deep space; the vitality that lurks in the coved chambers of the body, in oceanic depth, in the ravine of the web, or the shadowed corners of subversive communal space.


Anneke Kampman, Evan Ifekoya, Tristam Vivian Adams & Carey Robinson, Diana Policarpo, Sarah Gillett, Rachael Finney, Jennifer Boyd, Amy Pettifer & more TBC.

This event was curated by Jennifer Boyd and Amy Pettifer upon invitation by Laboratory of Dark Matters.

Laboratory of Dark matters is an evolving exhibition of new work and events by nine artists grappling with the original research of astrophysicists searching for dark matter at Boulby Underground Laboratory. Their Open Lab is at Guest Projects throughout April and features a series of public workshops, talks and events.

Laboratory of Dark Matters is Susan Eyre, Amy Gear, Daniel Clark, Luci Eldridge, Sarah Gillett, Peter Glasgow, Kate Fahey, Melanie King and Elizabeth Murton. For more details visit www.laboratoryofdarkmatters.com
