With Hidden Noise: Sculpture, Video and Ventriloquism looked at sculpture and video art in terms of ventriloquism and its animating metaphors by presenting a selection of objects, sculptures and videos that are both evocative and illustrative of voice and voice throwing.
This accompanying catalogue examines the one-to-one relationship between object and operator, sculpture and maker, and challenges the commonly held assumption that sculpture is strictly silent art. It looks at the different ways that sculptors have expressed themselves and their ideas through objects and, in turn, at how sculptures have been made to ‘speak’.
With an introduction by Penelope Curtis (Curator of the Henry Moore Institute), texts by curators Stephen Feeke and Jon Wood, and descriptive catalogue entries on all the works in the exhibition.
