Ilona Sagar show at RCA featuring Bowers & Wilkins speakers

Ilona Sagar - Unsound House

“Sound has always been a key element of my practice, which spans performance, film and assemblage.”   Sound artist, Ilona Sagar.

“My work explores our shared interactions in both public and private space and sound an essential component of that fractured narrative. Audio acts as both a dislocation and a connecting element which has a profound impact of our bodily and cognitive experience of the world. I work organically with sounds recorded during the process of filming footage. In this way, I pick up a huge range of nuances and incidental moments.

In a number of recent works I have collaborated with sound designer Doug Haywood. We both have a shared love of the subtlety found in the incidental and overlooked noises that surround us and it’s been a really productive relationship. I approach making new work first through thinking intuitively about a space and it’s context.

‘Unsound House’ currently exhibiting as part of the Royal Collage Fine Art Graduation show, uses the soundtrack from three films to weave meaning from abstract and beguiling imagery. Sound has always informed my approach to editing film. In ‘Unsound House’ I have taken this to an extreme. The Soundtrack is able to guide an audience through the work, giving them something to hold onto and position themselves within, or it can be a schism creating disorientating and unsettling experience.”

 

  • Unsound House runs until 1st July 10am-5.30pm daily. Late night opening on the 29th June until 8pm
  • RCA Sculpture Building, 15-25 Howie Street, London SW11 4AS
