The exhibition explores the relationship between writing and animals, with an obvious preeminent focus towards the wolf — in its many guises. Louis Mason and TATYANA have both been invited to respond to the work, adding their layer of interpretation in the gallery through text, sound and visuals.
Louis Mason will read a commissioned piece of fiction that describes forms looking for bodies, after which TATYANA will present a new iteration of her audiovisual installation ‘Healing Harp’. Vast soundscapes of digitally processing live harp and imagery seek to tease out the dynamic between the ominous and blissful that is present in de Haas’ objects and her work.

𝗧𝗔𝗧𝗬𝗔𝗡𝗔 is many things – a harpist, singer, producer and sound artist. A graduate from Berklee College of Music (USA), TATYANA weaves together electronic music with a classical instrument to create her own unique style. Her aim as a sound artist is to reawaken and enliven our senses and to enlarge our mental attention. As a performer and a musician with a contemporary approach to the harp, she blurs the boundaries between pop, jazz and dance music combining these elements with her powerful voice and eclectic songwriting.
