@circa.art Name some of your favourite musicians?

@nikitagale I'm having a deep Dorothy Ashby moment right now; I think that the Afro-Harping album is one of the best albums of the 20th century. It's like sonic dopamine.

My friend L'Rain has been releasing some very exciting singles from her upcoming album Fatigue, which comes out on Mexican Summer this month (June)... Her forthcoming second album, Fatigue, demands introspection from ready ears with an array of keyboards, synths, and hauntingly delicate vocals that create a genre entirely her own.
__

Today @nikitagale's friend and musician L'Rain @turrelljames launches her album 'Fatigue' with Mexican Summer @mexican_summer -- head to the @bandcamp website to order.

Throughout this month watch SOME WEATHER by Nikita Gale, in collaboration with Chisenhale Gallery & @circa.art on the following screens around the world:

🇬🇧 20:21 BST on London's Piccadilly Lights
🇰🇷 20:21 KST on Seoul's Coex K-POP Square
🇯🇵 09:00 JST on Tokyo’s Yunika Vision
🌐 20:21 BST on CIRCA.ART

Last weekend @londonwildfruits led a series of fascinating foraging walks starting at Yu Ji’s exhibition, our first in-person event in over a year. We discovered wild rocket, mustard leaves, and flourishing brassicas all within touching distance of the gallery and mused on interspecies solidarity and the foraging ‘gestalt’.

Visit our website chisenhale.org.uk to explore our ongoing programme of events connected to Yu Ji’s ‘Wasted Mud’, including talks on biomedicine in the arts, tours of Bethnal Green’s Phytology Garden, and more (or visit our bio link).

“I brought a breast pump with me for all the time in London...The pumping is such a strong memory.

Yu Ji's new commission, 'Wasted Mud', is open at Chisenhale Wednesday – Sunday, 12pm -6pm. Free entry.⁠
