A group exhibition with artists Klaus Pinter, Timothy Layden, Bobby Sayers, Riz Maslen, Jennifer Price, Keith Hopewell, and Theresa Bruno.

The first of two thematic exhibitions about Synesthesia curated by Lucy Lopez and Sonja Bargielowska. Phonetics has been supported by and produced in partnership with Lush Spa Kings Road.

Exhibiting instances of or allusions to Synesthesia within contemporary art, our interest lies not in the exactitudes of what it means to be a synesthete but rather in the quality of lived experience that this implies; the minutiae of direct and secondary visual, phonic and physical connections and how these mirror or contribute to the artistic process.

Part of the curatorial impetus of Phonetics was to create multiple ways of experiencing the exhibited works, in order to mimic certain neurological pathways. In line with this, Synesthete Timothy Layden has created an audio visual score corresponding to both the works and the environment which they inhabit.

Phonetics aims to create an immersive space; an environment that engages and confuses the senses. The exhibited artists engage very differently with the given thematic structure, their common ground being a link to Chromesthesia; focusing on the linguistic, the phonic and the silent; noise and text as addressed via the human condition.
