19 November 2009 - 19 December 2009

Mexican artist Florencia Guillen has been invited to be our artist in residence, developing two projects on campus connected by sound. Drawing upon her travels across countries and continents, Guillen's work reflects on her encounters with everyday people and situations as well as her own internal journeys.

Editions from an Encounter

On show in the Art Exchange, University of Essex, Colchester campus, an installation of printed video stills, drawings and a textual sound composition that documents an enigmatic encounter with a Mongolian nomad and his horses during Guillen's journey from Moscow to Beijing.

Limited Edition

ESCALA commissioned Florencia Guillen to produce an artist edition on felt of one of the drawings from Editions from an Encounter. This edition is available for purchase from the Collection through Culture Label

Soundscape Stories

Across the campus squares, an outdoor installation with five complementary sound compositions of stories, news and other sounds captured both at the University of Essex and in Mexico between July and November 2009. These sounds are combined with an original musical piece commissioned especially for this work.
