羊 ARTIST INFO 羊
JEZ RILEY FRENCH
The work of Jez Riley French involves field recording (using conventional and extended methods), photographic images / photographic scores and intuitive composition. In recent years he has been working closely with specific spaces (natural and man-made), capturing moments that connect with a personal sense of place. Alongside his own creative work, JrF also builds specialist contact microphones & hydrophones, curates the engraved glass & . point engraved cd editions, the ‘a quiet position’ series of online releases / forums exploring the broad ideas surrounding the act and art of listening through field recording and lectures on both field recording and intuitive composition as a guest lecturer & on the regular Wildeye International School of Wildlife film making residential location sound recording courses in the UK and Europe. Recent work includes commissions for Tate Modern (UK), Artisphere (USA) and for organisations in Italy, Iceland, Japan, Spain and the UK. A section of his piece for Tate Modern was also chosen to be part of the ‘500 years of British Art’ series at Tate Britain. In recent years Jez has been working extensively on recordings of surfaces and spaces (natural and man made) and has also been developing the concept of photographic scores. He is particularly associated with the development of extended recording techniques, including the recording of structural vibrations, contact microphone recording, ultrasonics, infrasonics, internal electronic signals via coil pick-up's and recordings made with hydrophones.
PHILIPPA JEFFERY (SHEEPWOMAN)
Philippa Jeffery's work has often been concerned with the domestic, the feminine, the unconscious, the overlooked and has been informed by her experience of becoming a young single mother at the age of 18. Her practice is multi-disciplinary, incorporating a practice of dream recall through text and image, drawing, felt making, mask making and performance. Philippa is interested in ephemeral moments, encounters and conversations, and in locating her work quite firmly outside the gallery system. She is interested in ideas relating to the mask in it's broadest sense as well as in the process of mask-making and the animation of masks. Her performance work is often spontaneous, interventionist and improvised. She is interested in the junction between art and healing, theatre and ritual, dreaming and waking life, humour and sorrow. Recent performances have been seen in Berlin during the Month of Performance Art, Suicide Circus, The Alchemistic Cabaret and Club Lido as well as at Passing Clouds in London and Immaginni D'ell Interno International Puppetry Festival in Pinerolo, Italy.
