AboutThe human voice touches the pictures and the picture begins to move in the rhythm of the bars. Nothing is more appealing when unattractive photographs flirt with a chanteuse."
Shed and a half Gallery is pleased to present new work by Veronika Spierenburg. Spierenburg is a Dutch/Swiss artist
working predominately in video and photography. Her work operates in the realm of stillness and movement, where the camera's eye and the human eye, sound and image and the unfamiliar view converge. Spierenburg is primarily interested in how irrelevant photographs acquire a function and how sound loads pictures with emotion.
The new work in this exhibition focuses on an installation of a photographic series composed into a sound system. Stubs on a carpet, holes in a wall, raindrops on stone will be seen as pitches and function as tune. The singer Sabina Leone will interpret the photographs into sound and transform the shed into a live act at the show's opening. After the opening the pictures and sound are separated between the sheds in order to experience how the sound recalls the images and vice versa.
Born in Switzerland in 1981, Veronika Spierenburg studied at the School of Art in Basel, Gerrit Rietveld Academy and
Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. She was nominated for the Steenbergen Stipendium 2005 in the Netherlands and received the Red Mansion Art Prize 2006 in London. Spierenburg has exhibited in Britain and internationally. She currently lives and works in Switzerland.
Shed-and-a-Half Gallery is a shed and a half on a roof in Shoreditch. It is a non-commercial, artist-run alternative art space in the centre of London's eclectic East End art scene.
