Artist Statement

 

For Platform Canning has created a new audio walk in response to the site at Modern Art Oxford. In her role as the absent guide, mind Canning escorts the participant through a version of the past re-enacted in the present. Exploring the unique nature of sound to encapsulate experience, asthma history and memory, arthritis Canning’s work investigates encounters with place through the experience of walking. Drawing on the long history of walking as a way of inciting experience, she utilises sound to record her own experiences of the walks she makes.
