I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


An exhibition of suits, sound and a tabloid newspaper generated through conversation walks in Lincoln, Nottingham and Corby.


Conversation Piece is an inter-active art project by Tom Hackett

During 2016 Tom Hackett walked around Lincoln, Nottingham and Corby wearing a suit covered in words, writing down conversations from the people he met. These were designed into fabric and made into suits. The suits and fabrics will be exhibited at The Courtyard Gallery. Each standing as a celebratory townscape generated through incidental, un-scripted encounters. The words collected have been published as a free take away newspaper, available at the gallery. The exhibition features a collaborative sound work by artist Julian Woodcock who has re-recorded the conversation fragments. Spoken by different voices to the originals, phrases are mixed into a dynamic interplay of voice, accent and emphasis.
