Maggi Hambling & Chris Watson

Monday – Saturday, 10am – 5pm / Sunday, 10am – 4pm
The Switch Room, Snape Maltings
Britten Pears Arts presents Relic : an installation by the artist Maggi Hambling and sound recordist Chris Watson, which will be on display in The Switch Room at Snape Maltings between 2 June and 31 August.
Each artist in their own practice responds to the melting of the polar icecaps, Hambling through her series of Edge paintings first shown in 2017, and Watson through his location sound recordings. In this collaboration, the audience is confronted with the gradual, man-made disaster through expanded senses of sound and vision. As if on the threshold of a dream, chaos clashes with order, night meets day, primordial forms rise out of the dissolving icecap to confront the visitor with our destruction of the planet.
