Description

Beyond the Museum: Unlocking the Paranormal & Hidden Power of Objects

1.1 million objects are held in the collections of Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums. Within these collections are examples of objects of unknown origin: paintings by unknown artists of unknown men and women, archeology passed on to a museum and collected by nameless 19th century enthusiasts; geological, industrial and social history artefacts whose provenance, when all scientific and rational research has been exhausted, remains a mystery.

On the evening of Tuesday 13 March at 7.30pm the Shipley Art Gallery will be hosting a live event with North East based medium and psychic Suzanne Gill.

Suzanne will be performing live readings with objects from the Shipley Art Gallery and Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums collections in an attempt to unlock and reveal new and previously unknown stories, connections and interpretations. The readings will be added to the object and collection records as additional interpretation after the event.

She will be accompanied by Professor John Bowers and Tim Shaw from Newcastle University who, during the event, will capture, amplify and transmit live, on-site field recordings and geosonic data from the event.

Tim and John have developed a practice which they call Mythogeosonics, an extension of the concept of field sound recording which captures hidden sonic elements that may be inaudible to the human ear. They use a variety of methods including geophysical data sonification, the use of resonant objects, paranormal investigation and electro magnetic field capture.

The event will be followed by a short Q&A session with Suzanne, Tim, John and Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums event producer Michael McHugh.

The compère for the evening will be artist Mick Davies.

This is a free event but booking is essential.

This event will not be appropiate for childeren under 13 years of age.

Under 18s must also be accompanied by an adult.
