Harriet Butler - An Illuminating Gaze

Who this event is for

  • Everyone


Old Fire Station, George Street


SARU practitioner Harriet Butler will talk about the idea behind a new collaborative residency that she is leading in relation to place, mapping, sound, and ecology, and the work that lead her to this point.


Harriet’s practice, which is increasingly focused on sound installation and experimental performance, has explored storytelling, objects, and otherness. In speaking of the collaborative residency, Harriet will talk about how movement, line and echo form an important part of the creative framework for the ideas being explored.


Joining Harriet in this collaboration are the artists Renzo Spiteri and Helen Frosi. The residency is taking place at Fusion Arts and Ark-T in East Oxford over several months, and the final work will be shown in these spaces as part of the audiograft festival in March 2019.


Harriet is a recent graduate of Oxford Brookes University where she studied for an MA in Music, with a focus on experimental composition and sonic art. She continues to participate with the Sonic Art Research Unit as a Postgraduate Research Assistant. Her work has been shown at audiograft festival in Oxford and the Rising Sun Arts Centre in Reading.
