During the night the crops will still grow

A sound work that started with a recording made by one of the artists looking at Ed Ruscha’s Los Angeles Apartments, an edition of 25 black and white photographs, at the Basel Kunstmuseum in Switzerland. The artist can be heard, along with a small number of other visitors, moving slowly from photograph to photograph within the particular hushed surroundings of the Museum’s special exhibitions room. The artist then showed the catalogue of the exhibition to his blind mother at her house in Barry, South Wales, describing and discussing the photographs, while listening to the recording of the exhibition together. A visit to an exhibition through the ears, the memory and the imagination.
