    'A Memory of Darkness' with Louise Beer (Audio Event)

    Join Louise for a live broadcast of her audio piece, A Memory of Darkness. Listeners will be encouraged to wear an eye mask/ scarf for the event and use headphones. A secret link to the broadcast will be sent with the order confirmation. A Memory of Darkness comprises a sonic piece created using field recordings of bird song from Louise’s recent experience at Hinewai Reserve, in her native Aotearoa New Zealand. Alone, looking outwards over the Pacific Ocean, as the warm breeze rustled the native trees nearby and the Rurus (Morepork owls) sang out into the night, the artist experienced overwhelming feelings of both wonderment and environmental grief in equal measure.

    About Louise

    Louise uses installation, moving image, photography and sound to explore humanity's evolving understanding of Earth’s environments and the cosmos. Louise creates objects and experiences that reflect the incomprehensible nature of reality, from the ocean floor to the night sky in order to highlight humanity’s infancy of understanding of the cosmos and that we remain in a time where even the implausible is possible. Louise is a co-director of Lumen, super/collider, Pale Blue Dot Collective and Print Science. Louise has exhibited extensively across the UK and internationally.
