Sound Henge with Madame Ceski Exhibition
15/12/2022 @ 12:00 pm - 22/12/2022 @ 5:00 pm
We are thrilled to share that local experimental musical artist Madame Ceski (Francesca Simmons) is working on a life-sized stone circle sound installation here at St Anne’s House.
Step inside the circle to be enveloped in a ritual soundscape and touch the tactile stones to trigger sounds, in this transformative musical experience. Inspired by the history, archaeology & folklore of stone circles, the artist is creating a space that uses our senses to link ancient to modern.
Stone circles are places of connection (community and land) and experience (ritual and sensory). Through the use of multi-speaker sound installation & tactile sound technology, the artist will ignite this dialogue, creating a reflective space that draws on our relationship with the land, the skies above & the rhythm of the natural world.
The stones are created through a process similar to rug making (tufting/latch-hook). During her time in the space, the artist will set up an area for the public to do self-led tufting, with materials and instructions provided. These tufts will create an additional mossy carpet to be added to the installation throughout the residency.
