Still Still Far Wide
- Pop-Up exhibition: Charring Cross Underground Arcade London WC2N 4HZ
A Pop-Up exhibition, performance and conversations over 3 days:
Mal Woolford spent the winter working with the support of storytelling group Dover Tales, veteran actor Chris Burke and emerging talent Rhianna Jacobs of Dover Youth Theatre. Together with sound designer Haresh Patel, he made windswept field recordings and teamed with flautist Paul Cheneour to create soundscapes for the exhibition. The result is a stunning show that draws parallels between the fears of the past and current trepidation about the future.
“Shakespeare borrowed freely from his sources to speak to the political uncertainties of his time. In the same way, I have treated Lear lightly to find ours, haunted with old ideas and forgetful of how to make and sustain peace and growth.” The project started as a close observation of a pocket of landscape and became a search for signs of renewal. The exhibition at the Magic Gallery in London will open on 29th November for three days
