Band of Holy Joy present Notes From A Gallery
an online exhibition of short film,
performance art, live radio and wall art created and transmitted live from Gallery 46
and broadcast on our YouTube channel
and though our website.
The short films have been commissioned especially for the band’s forthcoming
album Dreams Take Flight
, a set of 8 songs whose themes are concerned with
walls and mask’s, constraints and freedoms, lost connections, brutal
interventions, crowded isolation, clouded behaviour.
The songs themselves are shot through with personal ghosts and private acts,
nagging doubts, fleeting moments of hope, illuminating the tricky art of living
with love in these dark precarious times, always hoping to get by through whatever means, of magic music image light.
As a statement of intent we will inhabit Gallery 46 for the duration of the
exhibition and create visual and sound works whilst we are there, setting up a
radio station, creating visual works, recording sounds, breaching isolation.
This exhibition will run nightly from the 24th to 27th of February
. We will be
showing two new video films a night with a performance that corresponds or is inspired by that evening’s films.
