David Austen- Sarah Hardie EAF performance

Sarah Hardie: songs for someone who isn’t there
Two performances: 9-9.40pm and 10-10.40pm, 1 August 2015
The Corner of Chambers Street and West College Street
Old College, University of Edinburgh

songs for someone who isn’t there is an evening of ‘lullabies’ – performances of song and poetry by established and emerging artists- through the streets of Edinburgh. Work by David Austen will be performed alongside Ed Atkins, Marco Godoy, Sarah Hardie and poet Crispin Best.

These city-wide ‘lullabies’ represent not the idealised togetherness of typical lullabies, but rather the pained isolation of our contemporary age of broken encounters: the lover’s hope, materialised in song, against the stony silence of public space.

Free admission.

Charles Avery – EAF Commission 2015

The Improbable City
Charles Avery Edinburgh Art Festival Commission 2015
30 July – 30 August

For The Improbable City, Avery will realise a tree from the municipal park of his fictional island city Onomatopoeia. Over five metres tall and ripe with strange fruit, it is cast in bronze, and draws entirely on mathematical equations (including the square root of 2 as well as the Fibonacci sequence) for its design.  Part plant, part sculpture, part temple, Avery’s tree sits within our world and outside it, offering a meeting point, or a place for momentary escape and contemplation.
Situated in Waverley Station – the only station in the world to be called after a novel (Sir Walter Scott’s Waverley) – Avery’s tree finds a suitably fictional home.

The commission will run in tandem to Avery’s solo exhibition at Ingleby Gallery, The People and Things of Onomatopoeia.
