WHAT'S NEW

2010/10/09
Susan Philipsz’s work commissioned for the City of London.

Every day of the working week, the City of London is alive to the sounds of trade, commerce and traffic. At the weekends quiet descends on the offices, squares and streets of the City, broken by the occasional sound of cars and the pealing of church bells.

The quietness of the City has inspired SURROUND ME, Susan Philipsz’s first commission in London, a constellation of sound installations in different spaces across the City. Philipsz’s voice resonates through the empty streets around the Bank of England and the Royal Exchange, across Modernist high-walks and medieval alleyways and along the banks of the River Thames.
