‘Tama On: This is an object’ with silent sculptures of sound layering the entrance into the room, collected by Calum-Louis Adams. What can be suggested as silence-cancelling headphones, contains the voice on warm tape – ethereal non objects. Not seen but pulled from memory mimicking the shifting flour that lines elements of the room from Adams’ craft of memory theory. The Object isn’t all that it seems. First of all; what is an object?

Is it something you hold, behold, or make from matter or is it also heavy and non visible. But felt like fear – changing our bodily experience. ‘Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.’ taken from the KJV version of the bible opens and closes the string of pearled narratives in the audio to suggest the intersection of JMN’s practice with CLA’s own both fascinated by ethereal voice and the matter of things driving toward us. What are the things inbetween? Tama On:___ and you grasp the blank. Fill it in and walk away changed by nothing at all but something because of it. The evidence is in how you’re affected.

This is project #9 of Dorset Place x 11 collaborations – a new series of projects and work responding to the university as a site for experimentation and learning. Admission is free and open to all.

Dorset Place is Brighton CCA’s project space and hosts a series of short projects and exhibitions by emerging artists, organisations, curators and students. With a fast changing programme, the space is an exciting platform for experimentation, collaboration and engagement with new ideas and voices. Dorset Place allows us to be responsive, initiating and supporting projects which stand alone or connect to our wider programme. The space is offered free of charge with curatorial, marketing and limited technical support.
