Soundtrap V: Bruce Gilbert and Beaconsfield ArtWorks
Diluvial

We know the sea is eating away the coast in quite a number of places, primarily- but not totally exclusively- on the east and south coasts. It’s a particularly huge issue in East Anglia...Daily Telegraph 18 August 2008

Taking as its theme the rising sea levels that preoccupy those living close to water, particularly on the Suffolk coast and on the banks of the Thames, Diluvial dwells on the dynamics between creation myths, flood geology and the concept of global warming.

Diluvial is a collaboration between Bruce Gilbert (ex Wire) and Beaconsfield ArtWorks (David Crawforth and Naomi Siderfin).
Diluvial is the fifth in Beaconsfield’s acclaimed annual commissioning series for new sonic works, Soundtrap.
In May, Diluvial a performance launched Soundfields for Faster than Sound: Aldeburgh Festival’s weekend of experimental music. The work will be re-presented for Beaconsfield’s Upper Gallery in September.


Nooshin Farhid
Conic Trilogy
A series of 3 videos, 2010
Parabola 22:00
Hyperbola 26:00
Ellipsis 9:00

Farhid sifts through information-overload to construct elusive collages of moving image, in which found footage is seamlessly spliced with her own film. Structured on a geometrical concepts of curves and surfaces (Parabola / Hyperbola / Ellipsis), the artist worked with a mathematician to create these works of meticulously assembled images. Visitors to Beaconsfield’s recent exhibition, Gaming at Waziristan will have seen Farhid’s Conic Studies which prefigure this major video series, Conic Trilogy.

“Farhid is a restless collector in an age of information excess. But to ‘collect’ suggests power, previous knowledge, expertise. Instead the artist’s eye is informed by marginalization rather than any system of knowledge based on control or order. She induces, rather than deduces, knowledge.”
Peter Cross, Inscription and Transcription: Some notes on the Liminal,ART TOMORROW, March 2011
