ART OPENING: Una Know ‘Sounding out plant hunters, space seekers, listeners, fakers, keepers’ @ Fold Gallery 6-9pm Thursday 3 July

Una Knox


15 Clerkenwell Close London EC1R 0AA


FOLD Gallery is showing an exhibition of new work by Una Knox, curated by Erica Shiozaki.

In filmmaking, room tone is the ‘silence’ recorded at a location or space. This silence is distinct, a presence created by the space boundaries – walls, ceiling, floor and other objects in the room, in relation to a microphone.

Knox’s research-based practice encompasses various media, including moving image, print and performance. For this exhibition, Knox’s works explore architecture through sound, incorporating thoughts on technologies, voice, fiction and historical events. Within a tropical landscape a speech pathologist, working with the human body as acoustic space, uses voice to sound out and understand the surrounding inner and outer atmospheres.

The exhibition is accompanied by a publication and an evening of films selected by the curator and artist.
