London College of Communication (LCC) Sound Arts Phd student and award-winning UK artist Mark Peter Wright has a solo exhibition coming up at the IMT Gallery from 2nd November – 2nd December 2012. Re-imaging how we listen to and perceive place, the works presented in, 30 Minutes of Listening, draw specific inspiration and focus from the area South Gare: a Designated Site of Special Scientific Interest in Redcar, Cleveland UK.
Taking one 30-minute period of listening in South Gare as its point of departure, the exhibition proposes possible ways of experiencing time and space in relation to this singular moment. Through film, sound, photography, objects and text, Wright examines the dialectical nature of listening and its potential to transgress both physical and mental territories of place and self.
The exhibition is in partnership with the London College of Communication research centre CRiSAP, which is dedicated to the exploration of the rich complexities of sound as an artistic practice.
