Sidney Cooper’s Living Room (2019)

Sidney Cooper’s Living Room is a sound installation I am creating to celebrate the history of the Sidney Cooper Gallery since it was founded 150 years ago. It features the recorded voices of local people sharing memories and stories about the Gallery, and Sidney Cooper himself. Sidney Cooper’s Living Room will exhibit at the Sidney Cooper Gallery as part of my first solo show, in January and February 2019.

I am holding a recording day at the Sidney Cooper Gallery on Saturday 4 August 2018 to record memories and stories on audio tape. I am also looking to borrow objects and artefacts that relate to the gallery, and that may also feature in the artwork.

If you would like to share your story, or have an object to lend, you can participate by either booking an individual appointment on 4 August, between 11.30-1.30pm, or showing up to the open session (no appointment needed) in the afternoon, from 2pm-5pm.

    This was a lovely installation. Such a shame it now stands as a memorial to a much-loved facility, now closed and soon to be taken over by the Marlowe Trust, with no future public access.
