Philip Davenport & Nicola Smith: Whisper Residency
30 November – 14 December 2010
Artist Nicola Smith and poet Philip Davenport work at CFCCA traces what they describe as ‘the broken edge between different cultures and the beliefs that leak through’, using smell, taste, hunger and desire to track these ideas and turning the residency space at the Centre into an arena for encountering difference.
Both artist and poet have spent time in China on an exchange residency programme in Chongqing. This new work reflects on that experience. Nicola Smith will act as a deliberately misleading tour guide, taking visitors through an environment created by the pair using scripts devised by her and Philip Davenport.
