Fogo Island Arts is pleased to announce the 2016 publication of Hannah Rickards: Grey light. Left and right back, high up, two small windows.

Edited by Alexandra McIntosh and Nicolaus Schafhausen, this fifth volume in FIA’s publication series accompanies Grey light. Left and right back, high up, two small windows (2014), a major work by London-based artist Hannah Rickards commissioned by Fogo Island Arts. The publication features texts by Melissa Gronlund and Will Holder, a conversation between Hannah Rickards and Nicolaus Schafhausen, and striking new photographic imagery drawn from the installation’s physical materials and production processes. Like Rickards' work, the publication aims to bridge the distance between visual experience and its expression in language, whether spoken, written or gestural.

Grey light. Left and right back, high up, two small windows is a two-screen projected video installation with eight channels of sound. Structured rhythmically around the pattern of a foghorn sounding, the piece finds its origins in the notion of the foghorn as an auditory marker for non-visibility, or imagelessness.

Available through the Fogo Island Shop.
