Scat: Sound & Collaboration

04 Jun – 26 July 2013

Scat: Sound and Collaboration is an exhibition by Sonia Boyce centred on the significance of sound in art. Presented across all public spaces of Rivington Place, Scat explored how we experience sound, both collectively and intimately. Two immersive video works are brought together for the first time along with the Devotional Collection, Boyce's archive of CDs, cassettes, vinyl records and other ephemera.

For you, only you (2007), in collaboration with Mikhail Karikis and early music consort Alamire, transforms a 16th century musical masterpiece into a contemporary vocal composition. Oh Adelaide (2010), a collaborative work by Ain Bailey and Boyce, incorporates found footage of jazz singer and entertainer, Adelaide Hall (1901-1993), and mixes her voice with digitised and condensed recordings from the Devotional Collection.
Scat is presented by Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts). For you, only you was commissioned by the Ruskin School of Drawing & Fine Art in partnership with the De La Warr Pavilion, Locus+, Milton Keynes Gallery and Model Arts and Niland Gallery and with the support of Arts Council England.
