Volume in association with Black Rainbow Records warmly invite you to Hum James Thomas + Solina Hi-Fi Date : March 25 2011 — April 10 2011 Preview and record launch: March 25 2011 from 6pm Open Fridays and Saturdays 12pm — 4pm and by appointment Venue : Cartel / The Old Police Station 114 - 116 Amersham Vale London, SE14 6LG Tube: New Cross (East London Overground) Buses: 188, 47, 59 Hum is a spatial and sonic inquiry into the complex acoustic ecology of the Bow Flyover in East London. The result of an ongoing collaboration, the exhibition is formed of a series of new drawings by James Thomas and a sonic environment created by Solina Hi-Fi. Hum investigates the cartographic possibilities of drawing and sound to reveal the dense layering of actions, reactions, movements and counter-movements of the city infrastructure. Through a process of translation and exchange, the art works each attempt to construct a spatial awareness of the area around the overpass, extending beyond certain material boundaries to reveal meeting points and tensions where trajectories emanate. Using intuitive as well as scientific and mathematical means, the artists dissect and replay this dynamic convergence within the gallery space. This particular collaboration between the artists is conceived of as a process of inquiry, or as Robert Irwin describes as a dialogue of immanence where ‘certain questions become demanding and potentially unanswerable at a certain point in time', but that each of them have involved themselves in the same set of questions at the same time albeit through individual approaches to method and thought. A limited edition record of Solina Hi-Fi's soundtrack featuring artwork by James Thomas will be on sale for the duration of the exhibition.
