Nothing Is Set In Stone

Interactive stone and sound sculpture by composer and artist Mira Calix

 

21st June - 30th September

 

Nothing Is Set In Stone is a monolithic installation by artist Mira Calix, incorporating an interactive sound system enabling visitors to experience the work through both touch and sound. Set in the tranquil surroundings of Fairlop Waters, a stunning country park and nature reserve in the London Borough of Redbridge, the work will appear organically rooted in its landscape.

She has set the words of William Shakespeare to music, composed for the London Sinfonietta, worked with indie innovator Malcolm Middleton and supported Radiohead. She is the winner of a British Composer Award and has performed at Glastonbury, All Tomorrow's Parties, Sonar, the Barbican in London and the Sage Gateshead.

"Listen, and look, and feel. There will possibly be some who seek brief respite from the Olympic melee this summer. This calm focal point at the other end of the line will provide exactly the stillness they need." Evening Standard
