Hull Time Based Arts invites you to the launch of :
Estuary English by Joanna Millett

Estuary English is a two monitor video installation in which images and sounds of the muddy water of the Humber Estuary and related words spoken by Hull people are edited together. Estuary English deals with discontinuity and association, in relation to locality, language and accent and the way the human ear strains to make connections and meanings.

Joanna Millett is a Hull based artist working in video and sound, and an active member of Hull Time Based Arts.

Volumes (of Vulnerability)
Curated by Susan Johanknecht and Katherine Meynell

Twenty books housed in an aluminium tin, involving a diversity of perspectives and uses of technology created by artists from a wide range of disciplines. Some books hang, some fold out, and some are sculptural enough to stand. Curated for the new millennium and now touring internationally this is Volumes of Vulnerability. It brings together two ideas, measurement and risk, at one location: the book - and its relatives. Originated at Standpoint Gallery London. Catalogue available at Timebase price £3.

Both Estuary English and Volumes of Vulnerability can be viewed at Timebase from Nov 9th - 19th
Monday to Friday 10.30am - 4.30pm Saturday 1.00pm - 4.00pm
