Silence20210518

A hush descends as Josie Long presents short documentaries and audio adventures about silence.

From an artwork that pulls sounds outside of the range of human hearing within it - vibrations in the soil, the sound of bats in Senegal caught on a supersonic microphone - to a story about the silence which lies between generations in a family.

Curatorial Team: Alia Cassam and Andrea Rangecroft
Series Producer: Eleanor McDowall

Nina Garthwaite, the founder of the public listening phenomenon 'In the Dark', presents a showcase for delightful and adventurous short documentaries.

In the first edition of Short Cuts, she delves into tales of misadventure - starting with a chance encounter on a train where a couple's absorption in the crossword disguises a possible hidden romance. And encompassing the writer Joe Dunthorne's reminiscences of his misspent gap year selling door to door in Australia.

From the charged atmosphere on the London underground to distorted visions on the top of a mountain - Nina navigates tales of love, loss and wild abandonment.

In the second edition of this series, 'Divided we Stand', we hear stories of separation - political, personal and playful. From the story of a singing airman in World War Two, and his feelings about the class divide to a classic tale of unrequited love between an animated cat and mouse, Ignatz and Krazy Kat. We eavesdrop on a breakdown of communication between a Nigerian woman and an Irishman and listen to the lilting musicality of a litany of peace walls and separation barriers from around the world.

What can we learn from the humanity of others? From seeing ourselves reflected in someone else? Josie Long presents stories of role models - from surrogate father figures to people who create a path for others to follow.

"You know, vampires have no reflections in a mirror? There's this idea that monsters don't have reflections in a mirror. And what I've always thought isn't that monsters don't have reflections in a mirror. It's that if you want to make a human being into a monster, deny them, at the cultural level, any reflection of themselves... Part of what inspired me, was this deep desire that before I died, I would make a couple of mirrors. That I would make some mirrors so that kids like me might see themselves reflected back and might not feel so monstrous for it." - Junot Diaz
