"William Furlong: To Hear Yourself as Others Hear You"
2002-12-06 until 2003-01-19
South London Gallery
London, , UK United Kingdom

In this new work created for SLG, the voices heard are drawn from the past 30 years of Audio Arts. Resonant fragments of sentences, words, hesitations, the said and the unsaid, uhms and ahs are mapped and choreographed into the gallery. The sounds are heard from 32 loud speakers installed just above head height on a tracery of taut wires stretched across and along the gallery. The voices and sounds heard require the listener to move around the gallery to catch particular auditory focuses as they occur in different parts of the space.

Come and See is a further work, installed in the entrance to the gallery, which through voice recording explores local issues, ideas, and identity, constructed from the words and sounds of Camberwell and Peckham residents. From school children to picketing firemen and market stall holders a diverse range of opinions and experiences are documented.

Since 1973 William Furlong has been producing Audio Arts Magazine on cassette, which he describes as, "a primary medium and space for the articulation and dissemination of debate, theory and practice in relation to contemporary art." Over some 30 years Audio Arts has become an unprecedented archive of recordings made with over 300 of the best known contemporary artists, musicians, curators and critics, from Andy Warhol to Tracey Emin, Liam Gillick, Anish Kapoor, Joseph Beuys, Gilbert & George, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Matthew Collings to Yoko Ono.
