You can sit with us

Join Andrew Pierre Hart and his collaborator Remer Cier for a durational sound-based performance exploring sound, time and space, inspired by his exhibition Bio-Data Flows and Other Rhythms – A Local Story. Expect an experimental combination of noise, the magic of improvisation, jazz structures, voice, collaboration, local rhythms, sub bass, tempo, spatiality, volume and more. 

Performing for over 8 hours, the extended timeframe allows for an immersive and meditative experience, where sonic textures unfold gradually in the exploration of sonic possibilities. Innovating and testing the limits of sound, the artists aim to create an experience that is meditative, thought-provoking and space-making.  

At 5.30pm, artist Larry Achiampong joins Andrew for an impromptu conversation musing on the show through themes of sound.

Please note: our spaces have limited capacities and the event will operate on a first come first served basis. Arrive early to avoid disappointment.  

About Andrew Pierre Hart

Andrew Pierre Hart lives and works in London. He describes his work as focussed on ‘the symbiotic relationship between sound and painting’, while also incorporating aspects of sculpture, mural-making, installation, language, performance and film. Hart spent the first part of his career as a DJ and musician running the record label Deepart, which specialised in electronic music and Detroit-style techno. Musical techniques such as improvisation, ‘rhythmic research’ and an interest in the way sound resonates in space now infuse his multidisciplinary art practice. Recent figurative paintings have drawn on Western art historical precedents while also representing real and mythic figures that relate to diasporic experiences in London. His abstract tapestry-like compositions draw on sources as diverse as the hand-painted murals of the Gurunsi people in Burkina Faso, Nigeria; Yoruba divination codes; graphic musical scores; and digital coding.

This new commission from London-based interdisciplinary artist and experimental music producer Andrew Pierre Hart draws on Whitechapel’s longstanding history as a home for migrant and diasporic communities and continues the artist’s interest in exploring connections between sound and painting.
