Sound Art: A Conversation

November 25, 2020 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Join artist Aura Satz in discussion with Women’s Art Collection curator Harriet Loffler and academic Mina Gorji. Aura Satz will share her most recent work and will reflect on her practice as a sound artist.

Aura Satz’s work encompasses film, sound, performance and sculpture. Her work centres on the trope of ventriloquism in order to conceptualise a distributed, expanded and shared notion of voice. Works are made in conversation and use dialogue as both method and subject matter. Satz has made a body of work centred on various sound technologies in order to explore notation systems, code and encryption, and ways in which these might resist standardisation, generating new soundscapes, and in turn new forms of listening and attending to the other.
