Two films, two collaborations involving Gair Dunlop.
The latter is showing at the 123rd Society of Scottish Artists Annual Exhibition.
I’m delighted to announce that the ablab + dunlop collaboration is back on the road. Or near the road. We’ve always been a bit offroad, to be honest.
‘Europe Endless‘ is by Gair Dunlop and Lucy Smith. The artists and a team of volunteers from around Europe and across all age groups combine the ancient skill of handbell ringing with Kraftwerk’s ambiguous hymn to “Europe Endless.”
“Bell ringing is all about performance and communication within a landscape, marking a human settlement through sound and the rhythm of the church, culture and seasonal year.”Bells in the landscape are powerfully evocative; of celebration, mourning or warning.
