EXHIBITION OPENING TIMES

(closed on Mondays)
For her latest solo exhibition, Birkbeck presents 'Vladimir', the new installment from her critically acclaimed 'Instantanés' series. The Instantanés series explores the potential of sound to produce a truthful and resonant aural portrait of a place and it's people. Birkbeck enters the field to record the defining sounds that characterise a location, brings them back to her studio to distil, then rebuilds them into sound installation experiences. These creations are offered to the audience to inspire investigation into our relationship with sound, and how it helps to form our modern sense of identity and place.
Alongside sound works for CD publication and National Radio, Birkbeck has exhibited in Toronto, Singapore and Glasgow, and her work can also be heard on the YYZ anthology Aural Cultures.
