Progressive and experimental; Sense pushes boundaries, bringing multi-disciplinary art practitioners and creatives together to explore, reflect, and most importantly, connect through their work.
Sense is a collaborative project led by Patricia Puertas, Joel Smith and Xuân Sinden and Grow in Hackney Wick.
Xuân Sinden is an installation and sound artist whose work begins from the poetic process of documenting the mundanity of our everyday environments. Creating a pattern of image and sound, Sinden captures the various tensions, and pleasures, of living amongst the “movement of [our] imagination forming and deploying through images.” . His immersive installations portray the notion of a constant, and revolving city.
Joel Smith + Patricia Puertas, who have previously worked together in diverse sound performances commissioned by British Museum, Royal Academy of Arts and UAL, explore and experiment with sound to create rich, textured soundscapes. Featuring ethereal siren-like vocals and shimmering, effects-laden guitar motifs shifting across a fluid canvas of field recordings, found-sounds, samples, grooves and live improvised sounds, their performances continue to evolve.
Previous events have covered the theme of Perception, Rhythm and a one day Festival in collaboration with Hackney Wicked, Grow and Fear of Fluffing.
