Graduates from BA Photography, Book Arts and Sound Arts last night showed off their work to 1, 500 guests – including Neneh Cherry and T4s Miquita Oliver – for the opening of LCC’s second Summer Show, Power of Ten.
Here are some of the evening’s highlights…
Shown above is Paul O’Brien’s Once Wasn’t Enough For You, the piece forms part of Paul’s Hearing Beckett series – an ongoing body of work exploring sound, listening and hearing in the work of Samuel Beckett.
BA Sound Artist, Carina Levitan performs A Bike a Suitcase and an Umbrella. Carina’s sound installation is made up of found objects, opened radios, cassette tapes and home appliances. See more of Carina’s work on Vimeo.
In the Lower Street Gallery visitors get to grips with Emily Thompson’s interactive piece, Augmented Reality. Emily’s work investigates the possibilities of interaction between the traditional printed book and digital technology.
Exhibiting in the Well Gallery, Matilda Thulin’s photographs explore her relationship with nature. She comments: “This is a story about my relationship with the nature that surrounds me in my everyday life, both in London and in my childhood landscape”.
In the Atrium Gallery visitors schmooze under the leaves of Jennifer Harries’ Silver Birch, Battersea 2010. Jennifer’s tree installation is “an exploration of the limitations of photography and printmaking in their ability to reflect a common reality”. Watch Jennifer’s work being installed on YouTube.
Outside in the Triangle area, LCC’s improvising group of Sound Artists Unknown Devices (also known as the Laptop Orchestra), perform in the green shipping container.
The Reading Room (red container), showcasing work from BA Book Arts, is a hive of activity.
