Project DivFuse is proud to present our first event which will also mark the official opening of the space to the public.

The Code Keeper is an exhibition that showcases the latest drawings and motion graphic scores by Livia Garcia. Inspired by Cornelius Cardew’s graphic scores and her own experience in engineering draughtsmanship, Garcia has developed a series of line drawings which has subsequently been turned into digital motion videos. The artist is naming her drawings The Silent Improviser to suggest the fact that the way she juxtaposes the lines, symbols, letters and numbers is a form of improvisation. Her drawings connect with the subconscious and seem to be encoded with meanings that can only be unlocked and deciphered by the Code Keeper. Most of the graphic scores that are shown in this exhibition were created during the lockdowns.

Echo Chamber is a multichannel sound installation that explores the notions of routine and domesticity in times of pandemic. Composed from field recordings created during lockdown walkabouts and the performance of humdrum activities, the work interrogates the role that repetition plays in our everyday lives.

The sound pieces are accompanied by a series of drawings. These works were created in parallel to the recordings and act as a visual anchor to the sound installation. Made with basic materials such as children’s crayons, the drawings depict, in part, portraits of the couple’s daughter, and aim to evoke a sense of the familial by employing everyday pictorial language.

Echo Chamber is the first exhibition in the Intro : spect series under Project DivFuse, where selected artists are invited to showcase their media-based work on site as a checkpoint of their long term artistic development.

When We Used To Go Somewhere_Variants  – A Short Film By Liz Helman

Running Time 8.20

Made in the UK during the first stages of lockdown for the Covid-19 pandemic, the film explores dislocation alongside the longing to go somewhere; a freedom that was restricted for most of 2020.

The video is accompanied by a new soundtrack that appears as Invisible Future on the artist’s forthcoming album, The Yearning, released on the Flaming Pines label.

Liz Helman is a multi-disciplinary artist, working in time-based media.
