Renzo Spiteri - Through Shadows and Substance

Who this event is for

  • Everyone


Magdalen College School, OX4 1DZ


For his end of MA show, Renzo Spiteri will be staging a Multimedia Art Installation at Magdalen College School on the 6th October.

“When I first arrived on Shetland in April of this year, I was greeted by a canvas of minimal sound textures as I had never experienced before. By the time I left Shetland in July, following the last of three field trips, nothingness had turned into a particular stillness from which so much had emerged. Immersing myself in its natural conditions and phenomena, I felt that, only by then, had I started to embrace the island’s rawness and particular atmosphere.

Through Shadows and Substance unveils and shares my experiences while visiting Shetland, through interplay of field recordings, film, sounds and actions. It is a multimedia installation that documents processes developing, a state of mind in flux, a personal pilgrimage in search of a more significant mode of artistic expression.”

This work is part of the MA Sound Art final project, Oxford Brookes University.
