Fogo Island Arts is pleased to announce the 2016 publication of Hannah Rickards: Grey light. Left and right back, high up, two small windows.
Hannah Rickards’ Grey light. Left and right back, high up, two small windows (2014) is a two-screen projected video installation with eight channels of sound. Structured rhythmically around the pattern of a foghorn sounding, the piece finds its origins in the notion of the foghorn as an auditory marker for non-visibility, or imagelessness. This major work by the London-based artist was commissioned by Fogo Island Arts and presented at the Fogo Island Gallery from September 24, 2014 to April 12, 2015.
The fifth volume in FIA’s publication series, Grey light. Left and right back, high up, two small windows features texts by Melissa Gronlund and Will Holder, a conversation between Rickards and Nicolaus Schafhausen, and striking new photographic imagery drawn from the installation’s physical materials and production process. Like Rickards’ work, the publication aims to bridge the distance between visual experience and its expression in language, whether spoken, written or gestural.
