Singing Skies, 2014, Nottingham Contemporary


Wednesday 4th June – Saturday 7th June with Tindersticks performance on Friday, 6th June
The Space



The installation Singing Skies is an unfolding of a book of the same title which marries Suzanne Osborne’s ‘A year in small paintings – Skies, September 2010-September 2011’ with Stuart A. Staples’s song lyrics, written down for the first time. 


The paintings together with typed lyrics and a documentary by Martin Wallace are set within a sculpture created by Wolfgang Buttress, which provides a surface for the projection of Claire Denis’ film of the paintings, with an original score by Tindersticks.
