The first in a series of experimental sound nights featuring interdisciplinary artists, Hannah Dargavel-Leafe, Ziad Nagy and Tom White. Bringing together field recordings, found material, loops and repetition the artists present new sound from inside the Gallery’s Foyer.
Hannah Dargavel-Leafe will present a DJ set of artist records both from her own collection and from research into sound and publishing at the UCL Special Collections.
Ziad Nagy will use found material to create an intervention that is broadly existential, crossing identity, life, death, and time.
Tom White will present a new work featuring recordings of an intervention at the location of Werner Herzog’s film Even Dwarfs Started Small (1970) on the volcanic Island of Lanzarote.
Line up selected by Calling Cards Publishing.

This event coincides with Whitechapel Gallery First Thursdays late opening.
Through a practice of field recording Hannah Dargavel-Leafe makes sound pieces, drawings and sculptures that investigate sites at points of change.
Ziad Nagy (b. 1989) is an interdisciplinary artist. He uses found material in an array of mediums to create interventions that are broadly existential: identity, life, death, and time. He received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2012) and an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art (2017). He currently resides in London.
Tom White (b.1986) is an artist based in London working within the fields of sound, installation and performance. His practice is interested in how we respond to and inhabit environments, and the means of articulating and reflecting upon this through sound and visual images.
