In physics, White Noise describes a sound that contains every frequency within the range of human hearing in equal amounts. In today's world of sensory overload, the term's meaning is no longer limited to monotonous low level sounds. White Noise also signifies a form of refuge - a sanctuary from the stresses of 21st Century ‘cyber-life’.
Works from artists practicing across a range of disciplines and media were selected for White Noise. The exhibition is a multi-sensory response to a world filled with omnipresent background noise, exploring notions such as ‘seeing the unseen’, ‘zones of indiscernability’ and the ‘indeterminate’, as well as ideas surrounding the freedom of the imagination to fill the void.
The exhibition includes works on paper, sculpture and ceramics, digital and video works. In a location recognised as a historic place of rest, White Noise creates an environment of serenity, equilibrium and calmness just steps away from one of London's busiest and noisiest traffic hotspots.
