Laure Van Minden and Paul Levy present a series of drawings, paintings and projections created during participating in ‘The Plank’.
‘The Plank’ is a fortnightly accessible improv workshop facilitated by the Norfolk and Norwich Sonic Arts Collective. The sessions consist of part structured activities and part group improvisation.
Over the last 24 months Laure and Paul have created visual responses to the music and sound, often contributing sounds themselves through their drawing processes and equipment.
This show presents a unique insight into the development of the artist’s practice within the sessions, producing visceral documents from real-time visual responses and beautifully crafted artworks alike.
On Saturday evening we will be hosting a special Plink Plonk where musicians – including our own PLANKESTRA – will respond to the artists work, full details TBA.
