Susan Morris @ Bartha Contemporary
28 September 2021 - 17 October 2021
‘Ongoing Work’, is an exhibition by Susan Morris, which is a snapshot of the artist’s overall practice. The exhibition focuses on two recently completed projects: Silence (Project for a Library), is a set of six Jacquard tapestries woven directly from ambient sound recordings taken in the garden outside a library. They are configured to the ‘score’ for John Cage’s 1952 Lecture on Nothing, a spoken word performance that has silence at its core.
The second piece takes the form of 12 paperback books contained in a wall-hung shelf designed by the artist. Entitled de Umbris Idæarum [on the Shadow Cast by our Thoughts] the work is a diary recorded over the course of a single year, using the app Evernote.
