Artists at mima for Voiceover, Corners of Europe

9 December 2015 9:00 am - 9 December 2015 6:00 pm

This December, three European artists will be at mima in Middlesbrough to develop their project Voiceover, a part of our CORNERS programme.

Voiceover is a collaboration between artists Julie Myers (UK), Lucyna Kolendo (Poland) and Bojan Mucko (Croatia) gathered within the wider project titled Corners of Europe. The artists collect narratives about specific places connected with local industry, landscape, everyday life and work from the personal perspective of the workshop participants.

They are how these topics are connected, and how are different groups of people in the local area are affected by urban development. What is the commonality of experience across the different locations in Europe? The result of the workshop is a performative event broadcast live that can be heard on cornerslive.org.

During their visit, the artists will be working with the Thorntree Roses at the Community Hub at Thorntree to gather their stories and create sonic and visual responses to them. On Tuesday 8 December 1.00pm – 2.00pm, the artists will host the Open Forum as part of the Localism exhibition, with a live radio broadcast on Wednesday 9 December 10.00pm – 12.00pm.

You can tune in on Radio Corners, or better yet – join the conversation live at mima!

Voiceover will be premiered in South East Northumberland in May 2016 for CORNERS Northumberland event with bait.
