About the Speaker
Aura Satz will be discussing her recent work and reflect on her practice as a sound artist.
Aura Satz's work encompasses film, sound, performance and sculpture. Her work centres on the trope of ventriloquism in order to conceptualise a distributed, expanded and shared notion of voice. Works are made in conversation and use dialogue as both method and subject matter. Satz has made a body of work centred on various sound technologies in order to explore notation systems, code and encryption, and ways in which these might resist standardisation, generating new soundscapes, and in turn new forms of listening and attending to the other.
She has performed, exhibited and screened her work nationally and internationally, including Tate Modern (2012), BFI Southbank (2012), the New York Film Festival (2013), Tate Britain (2014), Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art (2014-15), Hayward Gallery (2014-15), Whitechapel Gallery (2016), Sydney Biennale (2016), NTT InterCommunication Center, Tokyo (2017), Lentos Museum, Linz (2017-18), SFMOMA, San Francisco (2017/18/19), High Line Art (2018), the Rotterdam Film Festival (2013-20), MoMA NY (2020), Kadist San Francisco (2020) and Sharjah Art Foundation (2020). She has presented solo exhibitions at the Wellcome Collection, London (2010-11); the Hayward Gallery project space, London (2013); John Hansard Gallery, Southampton (2015-16); Dallas Contemporary, Texas (2016); George Eastman Museum, Rochester (2015) among others. From 2009-10, she was artist-in-residence at the Ear Institute, UCL, funded by the Wellcome Trust. In 2012, she was shortlisted for the Samsung Art+ Award and the Jarman Award. Between 2015-2016 she was awarded a Leverhulme artist's residency. Her films are distributed by LUX.
