Dates: 3 March – 1 April | Location: Jerwood Space, 171 Union Street, London

For the Sake of the Image investigates the reciprocal relationship between moving image and sound, considering sound not merely as an accompaniment to the moving image but exploring how the force of one multiplies the power of the other.

Featuring the work of emerging artists Asnat Austerlitz, Richard Bevan, Juan Fontanive, Paul O’Kane, Mark Raidpere and Dan Walwin as well as exhibition curator, Suki Chan, this exhibition is the next in the Jerwood Encounters series.

“The use of sound defines space. It constructs places and narratives that are not necessarily seen. Combined with moving images, sound initiates a particular kind of encounter between the audience and the artwork. From the use of emotive sounds that assist to transport the viewer to a personal space, to incidental sounds which grounds the experience, sound exposes the physicality of the medium or the framework in which the artwork is presented.” Suki Chan, Curator, For the Sake of the Image.

A series of evening events at Jerwood Space will run alongside the exhibition from 6-8pm:
8th March – Artist talk
15th March – Film screenings
22nd March – round table discussion chaired by Gareth Evans
Events are free but must be booked in advance. For further information and to book, check the Jerwood Visual Arts website.
