Newtown Mountain – Exhibition notes continued: Sue’s sound art

‘I live Here’ 2008 Sue Challis – sound piece played continually in the gallery from wall mounted speakers. Snatches of conversation with ‘local’ people describing their attachment the place they live – Wrexham – interwoven with ambient sound from Newtown Mountain – streams, birds, stones moving. The voices suggest a thread of stories of settlement and movement : Welsh, Polish, Portugese, Chinese and English. The sound piece was designed to suggest a link between the themes of place, migration and the natural environment – variously represented by the different artists. (‘I Live Here’ played without visuals : it is shown here with a clip from ‘Le y dan ni, Artur?’ for technical reasons)
