Artist in residence Graham Dunning presents 'Visitor Centre: An excavation of sound'


During his residency at The Rea Garden, sound and visual artist Graham Dunning explored processes of excavation, cataloging and re-ordering of artifacts found on the site. He has also captured sound and created sound works during the summer residency. ‘Visitor Centre' presents these sound works and the evidence of his excavation. Graham's residency in the garden is linked to a discovery made by the first artist in residence Hannah Hull who, in her initial excavation of areas of the site, uncovered pieces of shellac used for ground fill; closer inspection revealed the grooves of a pressed record. Part of Graham's work at The Rea Garden involved uncovering the remainder in order to collage together these fragments and create a new, playable sound disc. This particular work will be presented at the co-current exhibition; ‘A Site of no special interest': A brief history so far of The Rea Garden artist project space. at Solihull Gallery www.solihull.gov.uk/gallery
