Exhibition - Apse Gallery 'Home and Lives'
Harri Endersby’s album Homes & lives is the backbone for a new boundary pushing performance/installation in Hartlepool, in a collaboration with costume designer Amy Norris and graphic designer Rory Henderson. With a dress made for the occasion, as well as almost 20 minutes of motion graphics, the singer takes centre stage in an art gallery, with visuals projected onto her, the dress and the surrounding area, creating an immersive and genre defying experience.
Harri Endersby is a folk musician and songwriter from Durham, and the project draws on themes she raises in her album, particularly the idea of ‘Home’, especially in the context of the North East. Amy and Rory communicate this through the dress and the visuals, creating something that people can personally engage with, especially those local to the area, but also something that is visually like nothing people will have seen before.
Working together across folk music, costume design, motion graphics and projection mapping in a way never before attempted, they are bringing the technology and awe found at large, big budget events, to the intimate setting of Church Square art gallery in Hartlepool.
