SERENA KORDA
HOLD FAST, STAND SURE, I SCREAM A REVOLUTION

Korda has produced a new sound sculpture that combines her interest in primitive impulses, invented tradition and our skewed relationship to nature. Taking her inspiration from the politically radical history of Garnethill (where the Reid Gallery is situated), Korda continues her investigation into ‘thin places’, anomalies in the landscape which were viewed in pre-Christian times as access points to the afterlife. Foraging expeditions on the Isle of Mull presented the deadly potential of some fungi as possible pathways to ‘thin places’. Mushrooms are imbued in our consciousness as grotesque, magic and poisonous. They attract and repulse in equal measure.

Korda is producing a series of sound experiments performed by an army of ‘agitators’ gathered from the communities of Garnethill and Mull.
