DREAM SPACE: Recording Workshop
OVADA, SAT 16/03, 2 – 4pm
Artist Magz Hall will be recording your dreams occurring during the run up to Brexit, to add to her bank of dreams for her ongoing Dream Space, which has been installed at the Jerwood Gallery, Nunnery Gallery and Whitstable Biennale. The installation was inspired by the early surrealist radio programme of Robert Desnos in 1937 produced La Clef des Songes [The Key of Dreams] the programme invited listeners to submit their dreams for interpretation and dramatisation, encouraging highly poetic responses from this interaction. Desnos wrote that an invented radio dream delivers the same secrets as a real one.
Magz Hall is a sound and radio artist who has exhibited in the UK and internationally: Yorkshire Sculpture Park, British Museum, Tate Britain, The Sainsbury Centre, Whitechapel Gallery, Barbican, V and A, Jerwood Visual Arts. Tree Radio at YSP was a finalist for British Composer Award in Sonic Art 2016. Magz heads Radio Arts having curated works for exhibition, broadcast. Much of her sound-based work is concerned with speculative futures of radio, inspired by 100 years of international radio art practice, drawing on her practice-based PhD ‘Radio After Radio: Redefining radio art in light of new media technology through expanded practice’ at UAL and is a senior lecturer at Canterbury Christ Church University. magzhall.wordpress.com
