Join us for a preview of the new Spike Island exhibition: Amitai Romm: Hum
Spike Island presents the first UK solo exhibition by artist Amitai Romm, exploring how scientific modelling relates to more open-ended forms of world-making. Romm encrypts and relays data from one of the world’s oldest continuous datasets of carbon sequestration — an environmental sensing system set up in a mature beech forest in east Denmark in 1996 — to produce new works in sculpture and sound, from a series of parabola satellites moulded from plant fibres to the minor oscillations of a low-frequency drone.
There will also be an opportunity to catch the ongoing exhibition in our adjacent gallery space: Eric Baudelaire and Alvin Curran: When There Is No More Music to Write
Hum is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, Danish Art Workshops, Grosserer L.F. Foghts Fund, Knud Højgaards Fund and 15 June Foundation.
