A long week of helping hang work in various undergrad final year shows alongside a return to one of my spiritual homes graphic design - by helping students creating mock up design objects; LP cases, book covers and folded business cards!
Managed to see/listen to a body of work by Tristan Murali under the title Klangforum Wein 1 today at Aldeburgh Festival – my favourite piece was Desintegrations - It was a wonderful muscular sound – as if Richard Serra had made music! – As Murail himself put it, “I make music by working the sound matter like a sculptor, revealing the form that is hidden within the block of stone, rather than constructing it with bricks, as is the case in a traditional approach”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRuxHVWfQtA He was there and most excellent in correcting the interviewer about his music.
Looking forward to the week to come – hanging another exhibition – the Post grad Book Art show at Camberwell, re-hanging the textiles show at NUA in a morning as work returns from New Designers and attending the event at Kings as part of Parallel Practices. The Private View of Cley14 is on Wednesday and I’m on invigilator duty Friday and Saturday which should be fun.
