POWER : Missiles, Miners & Monarchy

2 - 20 Apr 2019 | 10 - 6pm | Free

A unique exhibition of Tracey Moberly’s audio diaries of Tony Benn will be on display for the first time since 2005.  

Socio-political artist Tracey Moberly works in the multi-disciplinary arena as an artist, author, activist, radio-host and film maker.  

Working closely with Tony Benn on this exhibition Power: Missiles, Miners & Monarchy, Tracey has compiled a series of large Voice Portraits or sonograms on canvas to celebrate the life work of Tony Benn.

First launched in 2005 this is only the second occasion this work has been exhibited. Sonograms have been used by scientists involved in audio analysis, in areas such as voice recognition and bird song. Within this unique exhibition Tracey uses the same technique to capture her favourite key moments from his words and renders them as sonic visual artworks.
