Join us this Friday, 12 Aug, 6–9pm, to celebrate the opening of two new exhibitions at Goldsmiths CCA: Trevor Mathison’s From Signal to Decay: Volume 1 and Hadi Fallahpisheh’s As Free As Birds.

From Signal to Decay: Volume 1 is composer, artist and sound designer Trevor Mathison’s first solo exhibition in a UK institution and comprises an ambitious sound installation, a presentation of drawings, video, and live performance. In the months leading up to this exhibition, Mathison has undertaken a sonic investigation of the Goldsmiths CCA building, producing numerous recordings using an Ambisonic microphone.

Working across painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture, performance and installation, Hadi Fallahpisheh weaves a narrative that is part-allegory, part-fable. Taking place across all four of the CCA’s upper galleries, As Free As Birds centres on ideas around freedom – its symbolisms, protections and contingencies. Life-size cages interrupt the exhibition experience, separating viewers from Fallahpisheh’s paintings, photographic works and ceramics, and suggesting that freedom is always a contradictory position that relies on the captive or unprotected status of others.

Hadi Fallahpisheh’s new, choreographed performance entitled House Animals will take place from 7–7.30pm during the opening. The artist’s cat, mouse, dog and human characters will be embodied by dancers, with gentle reference to Merce Cunningham and other modern choreographers.

All welcome!
