Boyce, Sonia (2013) Scat. [Show/Exhibition]


Presented across all public spaces of Rivington Place, Sonia Boyce's Scat centres on the significance of sound in art and explores how we experience sound, both collectively and intimately. Two immersive video works are brought together for the first time along with the Devotional Collection, Boyce's archive of CDs cassettes, vinyl records and other ephemera.

For you, only you (2007), in collaboration with Mikhail Karikis and early music consort Alamire, transforms a 16th century musical masterpiece into a contemporary vocal composition. Oh Adelaide (2010), a collaborative work by Sonia Boyce and Ain Bailey, incorporates found footage of jazz singer and entertainer, Adelaide Hall (1901-1993), and mixes her voice with digitised and condensed recordings from the Devotional Collection.

Scat is presented by Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts). For you, only you was commissioned by the Ruskin School of Drawing & Fine Art in partnership with the De La Warr Pavilion, Locus+, Milton Keynes Gallery and Model Arts and Niland Gallery and with the support of Arts Council England.
