Showing as part of Edinburgh Art Festival 2019, Chapter is delighted to be presenting Migratory Motor Complex (2017), James Richards' first solo exhibition in Scotland.
The six-channel electro-acoustic installation, explores the capacity of sound to render artificial spaces and locate sonic and melodic events within them. Woven throughout the piece are re-occurring vocal and musical motifs that have been developed in collaboration with Kirsten Evans and Samuel Williams. The work is tuned in-situ, with Richards reacting to the acoustic contingencies of Collective's City Dome to create a cinematic and multi-sensory experience — an arrangement of vivid emotional cues to be navigated subjectively.
Migratory Motor Complex was curated by Hannah Firth and produced by Chapter for Wales in Venice at the 57th Venice Biennale of Art 2017. The exhibition was commissioned by the Arts Council of Wales and Wales Arts International with support and collaboration from the Welsh Government and British Council. The tour of this exhibition is made possible with support from the Art Fund.
