Intervention: Soundkino conceptualised by James Webb
Thursday, 5 October, 8.40pm
South African artist James Webb presents an evening devoted to listening to selected works of art as one would view a video screening. From the artist interviewing Orson Welles through a psychic, to recordings of nighttime scenes in the Limpopo savannah, the works create evocative audio scenarios tempered with conceptualist strategies. The event takes place on the occasion of the exhibition Home is so fucking complicated curated by Samuel Leuenberger.
