Darren Bader’s approach to sculpture is often guided by language and happenstance. On the occasion of his solo exhibition at ﬁg-2, he will show three music-themed works. ‘Candy Says, Lisa Says, Stephanie Says, Caroline Says’, an homage to the late Lou Reed, invites people with the four eponymous names to congregate and converse among themselves, over their smartphones/computers, and to ﬁg-2 visitors. ‘Study for Eight Days a Week’, an offshoot of Bader’s work in the recently opened Lyon Biennale, merges numerous songs according to title. The exhibition’s third work invites various musicians to form temporary quartets/quintets. The musicians will be grouped unorthodoxly, combining instruments rarely heard together: 808s, aulochromes, baglamas, bagpipes, bawus and bells, on down to trombones, violas, voices and zithers. Each quartet/quintet will be invited to write a song they can then record and mix in the free studio provided by ﬁg-2. If you’re a musician and interested in booking a session, please email info@ﬁg2.co.uk.
Please join us for the weekly Last Chance Exhibition Tour on Sunday at 5pm.
