The Store X The Vinyl Factory presents ‘Other Spaces’ with United Visual Artists at 180 The Strand

An immersive multi-sensory exploration of light and sound

The Store X The Vinyl Factory will present a new exhibition by United Visual Artists called Other Spaces at 180 The Strand this autumn, in collaboration with the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris.

Other Spaces features three large-scale installations by the multi-disciplinary collective UVA – Our Time, The Great Animal Orchestra and Vanishing Point.

Vanishing Point is an immersive laser installation that uses perspective as a way to reshape and redefine a space. Inspired by Renaissance drawings by Leon Battista Alberti, Leonardo Da Vinci and Albrecht Dürer, it features beams of white light that are projected into the space from an invisible vanishing point.

The Great Animal Orchestra

Making its UK premiere, The Great Animal Orchestra – presented in collaboration with Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris – is a soundscape of animal recordings, captured in their natural habitats around the world by seminal bio-acoustician Bernie Krause. UVA has imagined accompanying visuals featuring colourful abstract spectrogram landscapes of the environments where the animals live.

Featuring newly composed music by Mira Calix, Our Time is a site-specific evolution of the UVA’s 2013 commission for the Barbican called Momentum. The installation features kinetic structures swinging in and out of phase, while light and sound is projected throughout.

Other Spaces is the fourth major exhibition commissioned by The Store X The Vinyl Factory and will run from 1st October until 9th December 2019 at The Store X 180 The Strand, London WC2R 1EA. Entry is free, open Tuesday through Sunday, 12 pm – 7 pm.
