• JAN/FEB EXHIBITIONS • . Larry Achiampong: When the Sky Falls 25 January—21 March . The year begins with a major solo exhibition of new moving image, sound and sculptural works by Larry Achiampong, When the Sky Falls, his most personal solo show to date. . The exhibition title speaks of creation myths, folklore and the singsong refrains embedded in children’s stories. Each of which are ways in which we for generations have tried to make sense of the world and what has in recent moments felt like ‘the end of days’. . . Many voices, all of them loved 1 February—11 April Featuring: Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa, Laure Prouvost, Kader Attia, Liza Sylvestre, Willem de Rooij and Lawrence Abu Hamdan . Many voices, all of them loved is curated by Dr Sarah Hayden (@uni_southampton) and explores how contemporary artists are mobilising the voice as sound, as metaphor, and as political material. This exhibition asks: what constitutes a voice, and what determines how particular voices are ‘heard’? . . Lindsay Seers Every Thought There Ever Was 8 February—11 April . Through the use of digital animation, robotics, film, drawing and sound design Lindsay Seers has created a complex and layered environment that explores a world experienced differently. . Inspired by Avatar Therapy, Seers draws on two related philosophical ideas/scientific research to consider on the one hand historical representations of schizophrenia and contemporary insights into the condition, and on the other how this relates to the hallucinatory and potentially psychotic technological mediums we live by. .
