On Tuesday 29th September from 2-4pm, Leslie Deere will be guest for the discussion group. The group is informal and all participants will be welcome to share their thoughts and ideas. We’ll be discussing recurring themes in Leslie’s practice – Sonic Art. Lo-fi. Field Recordings. Collage. Sculpture. Time medias. Real Time. Digital. Analogue. Colour. Expanded cinema. Photography. Interactivity. Perspective. Immersive. Environments. Microcosms. – Plus new ideas from the residency and various tangential and semi-related thoughts.
Originally from Tennessee, Leslie moved to the UK to study Sonic Art, continuing from a performing arts dance back ground in NYC. Her recent eight channel sound installation for Air Space Gallery in Stoke drew on the city’s history of rave culture and industrialisation. Leslie’s live performances use analogue and digital audio equipment alongside field recordings and her lo-fi video projections, to make abstract and absorbing drone collages. Leslie has exhibited internationally with shows in Italy and Switzerland, and has a permanently installed sculpture in Geneva. Commissions include sound installations for Kew Gardens, Glasgow Centre for Contemporary Art and London Fashion Week SS15. She is represented by Galerie Analix Forever, Geneva / Paris.
