Responding to Two Temple Place’s elaborate decoration, these new sound artworks created by young people aged 13-24 activate the house through a sonic, imaginary exploration.
The exhibition is the result of a 12-week course for 13-24 year olds, convened by Holborn Community Association in partnership with Two Temple Place. Led by sound artist Hannah Kemp-Welch, over the 12 weeks the group was introduced to a variety of tools and techniques used in sound art practices. Young people experimented with field recording, composition and editing, listened to audio essays, went on sound walks and performed graphic scores. Participants explored Two Temple Place and responded to areas they found engaging , creating new sound works which will be showcased throughout the building on 22, 23 and 24 July, 11-4pm. Please book a FREE timed entry ticket via our What’s on page.
