The Island Studio Sessions is a long term research project curated by The Island in collaboration with the Clocktower Gallery and ARTonAIR.org in New York City. Manifesting as a series of residencies, exhibitions and radio broadcasts, The Island Studio Sessions uses the context of the Clocktower Gallery and its online radio station ARTonAIR.org as a framework for investigating various strands of research.

The Island’s Clocktower Residency forms part of an ongoing collaboration between the two organisations, inaugurated in 2010 with a regular radio broadcast by The Island for ARTonAIR.org that presents on-site recordings of UK-based performance, music, talks, artist interviews and specially commissioned artist projects.

Hannah Sawtell: The Island Studio Sessions

Hannah Sawtell's multi-disciplinary practice considers the manifestations and manipulation of surplus cultural production, the noise of the document and a language of editing that designates the screen as a lens. Hannah Sawtell lives and works in London. Recent exhibitions and events include Piano Lesson, Vilma Gold, London (2012); ICA Artist Film Club, ICA, London (2011); LUX Touring Programme 2011/12, Whitechapel Gallery, London, Tramway, Glasgow and First Site, Colchester; Exploring The Abstract, Tate St Ives (2011); Serpentine Cinema, The Gate, London (2010). Upcoming exhibitions include a solo show at ICA, London and Out of Focus, Saachi Gallery, London. This project continues a series of co-produced residencies, exhibitions and broadcasts at the Clocktower Gallery and online at ARTonAIR.org. This ongoing project brings together artists who in various ways negotiate the space of transition between aural and visual modes of production and dissemination, investigating how music and noise function as a forms of cultural disruption, charged with the potential to collapse genre boundaries and subvert social and cultural institutions.
