SoundFjord is the the only gallery in the UK at the moment which is devoted to sound art. The gallery focuses on the exhibition and documentation of art works, the development of artists within their creative and research practices, and ultimately, the promotion of sound art and its related interests to a wider audience. They run a variety of activities including gallery exhibitions, performances, workshops and artists residencies. SoundFjord is based in Tottenham, North London.
I talked to Helen Frosi, the curator, about their current exhibition Visiting Hours II a site specific, audiovisual work by Mem1 based on field recordings made in the local area during a recent residency at SoundFjord as well as the background to the gallery and the plans for the future.
