Ain Bailey: Version
This will be Wysing’s first onsite exhibition of 2021. Installed in three parts across Wysing’s site, the title pays tribute to the ‘version’ of a vocal track. Throughout the exhibition, Bailey brings together sound and sculpture as means to expand on ideas and techniques of ‘sonic biography’, a generative methodology of sound exploration that the artist has finessed over the years. Presented with the opportunity to occupy several spaces across the site, Bailey has produced a series of works that reflect on the artist’s Jamaican heritage, albeit from the position of someone who has not yet visited the island.
The exhibition features collaborations with Elaine Mitchener and Taylor Le Melle and takes the opportunity to explore ideas of sound translation for D/deaf and hard of hearing visitors.
We are taking measures to keep everyone safe for the launch event and these include extended opening times, staggered entry and a limit on capacity. If you are interested in attending, please book a ticket on eventbrite here, so we can keep track of numbers.
We are arranging transport from London and Cambridge and have options for wheelchair access. For those who wish to make their own travel arrangements to Wysing, there is ample parking on site including accessible bays next to the entrance
