Floor 2 Exhibition, Riverside building, Hammersmith

I have been asked to perform as the slate pipe banjo draggers with Mowgli and also to display a variety of my work for the upcoming group exhibition Floor 2 at the Riverside Building in Hammersmith as part of the Hammersmith and Fulham Arts Festival. It has been curated by artist Martin Lau and is currently the event of the week in Art Licks magazine.

I will be performing our improvised ‘no computer‘ set with Mowgli on the Friday night 8th June as part of Cos Chapman’s Witch of the Gate evening. My ‘wall hung copper based artwork made nicer by touching‘ interactive sound work will be on display. There is also the first public display of a triptych of my ‘greyness’ mixed media works of MaxForLive computer code images from an ongoing series looking at alternative ways of displaying sound art in gallery settings.

There is a Meet the Artists event on the Thursday evening 7th June – details here
There is also a Preview event/Private view on the Friday evening 1st June – Register here
