Event description
Please join us for a new durational sound-work by David Walker Kennedy at Maison Touchard on 7 March 2020, 7-9PM.

About this Event

David Walker Kennedy presents a durational sound-work collated from false memories, stolen ideas and forgotten conversations.

I’ve got the Pox is driven by confusion, fear and desire, and the power of time to reframe everything. The longer the better; because being forgetful is powerful. Drawing from Kennedy's research gathered over a month at the 57th Venice Biennale, the work is part of a larger exploration into the potential of sound to oppose the increasing speed of the artistic experience.

About

David Walker Kennedy (b. 1996, Glasgow) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Glasgow.

Kennedy is one of the featured artists with Still House Plants for Counterflows festival, Glasgow (2020) and was recently a recipient of the OTO Projects UK artist residency supported by the Jerwood Foundation, Cafe OTO, London (2019). Other residencies include the Venice Steward-research Fellowship (2019), CCA/AC Projects music residency, Glasgow (2018) and Pipe Factory residency, Glasgow (2017)

Maison Touchard is a project space set in an inhabited East London council flat, informed by the myriad roles and connotations associated with the concept of Home. Home as a site of production and metamorphosis: a dream factory, a purgatory, a dinner party; a costume closet, an archive, a prison. It is a play-pen for curatorial and artistic experimentation wherein notions of the quotidian, the domestic, and the local are probed in relation to broader ideological concerns of urban geography, architecture, and social space.
