Messy and Material: Listening Laboratory
Messy and Material: Listening Laboratory is a research event located somewhere between an experiential group, a live score, and a performance. Drawing from interdisciplinary methods and conceptions of ‘listening’, artist Lisa Skuret will install a speculative listening laboratory within fig-2 at the ICA in London. Spaces are limited and visitors are requested to bring their bodies and ears. Lisa Skuret has been invited to respond to fig-2 week 48/50:Seth Ayyaz.
Lisa Skuret is an artist and writer based in London. Skuret’s work researches knowledge production through an interdisciplinary practice combining live and site responsive work, text, score, performance, sound, installation and workshop. Recent work has taken place throughout a former public library; a Swedenborgian Church after service; Museum of Work, Sweden; Spike Island, Bristol; PEER Gallery, London; Parasol Unit, London; David Roberts Art Foundation, London; and MoMA PS1 in New York. Skuret is currently working on project Communal Materials; Or, Evolution Isn’t Fast Enough, which is supported by an Arts Council England award (2014-2015). Recent work as part of this project includes A Call from the Library, a performance installation ‘listening to’ and ‘playing’ a former public library in which the ‘score’ was the former public library itself.
A specially commissioned publication will accompany the project.
This performance has been generously supported by the Arts Council England.
