Gareth Hudson installation

Everything Was Beautiful And Nothing Hurt (I)

Taking the notion of transcendence and the viewer’s perceptions of that which lies beyond our sense, experience and understanding, local video and installation artist Gareth Hudson produced three solo shows in Newcastle in an attempt to crystalize his observations and the responses of his interview subjects.

Work I (shown in the Late Shows at St Thomas' on 13 May 2016) looks at what defines the sublime moment of transcendence, using field recordings from various locations. Gareth worked with sound artist Toby Thirling, taking four possible moments and reducing them to sound and light to create a show for the eyes and ears.
