    little update

    Some of the work I collaborated on in Italy last year has been published in a book called ‘The State of Art: Installation & Site Specific’ and can be purchased or previewed (read pg.66-69) at: http://www.blurb.co.uk/user/store/barehillpub

    Figlio del Silenzio (Child of Silence) 2013, a site specific installation and video created collaboratively by Stella Whalley, James Bell and Gabrielle Cooper at a folley in Atina, Italy.

    The work was a response to the unfinished building, a folly built 40 years ago, and the school where the artists were staying. A child’s chair is trapped with thread between the walls of the building, suspended within its frame. The video captures its movement in the wind and rain, the sounds of thunder and lightening, church bells and a crying child. Atina and the school can be seen in the distance.
