Cuckooz Commends: The Singing Tree @ V&A
Words by Bryony Rosier, Tuesday 02 January 2018

Sharing is caring dear traveller; each week, a member of our knowledgeable team of locals shares their insider knowledge on what’s hot and happening in and around our nests.

 

If you’re yet to visit Es Devlin’s phenomenal installation at the Victoria and Albert Museum, we highly recommend you shimmy on down – her current ‘Singing Tree’ exhibit will be closing this Saturday 6th January.

Best known for her kinetic stage sculptures created in collaboration with the Royal Opera House and National Theatre – her latest commission certainly doesn’t lack theatricality.  To celebrate the festive season and the history of the V&A, Devlin has produced an interactive artwork, which requires audience participation to bring it to life.

Each visitor is invited to contribute a word to the Singing Tree. Accompanied by synthesised vocals, the piece results in a choral symphony, creating something altogether quite spectacular. With a language consisting of a combined algorithm of 25 million words taken from 19th Century poetry, her work is progressive as it illustrates not only the future of technology with regards to the visual arts, but the nature of the evolution of language. And what better a place to exhibit this concept than in London – one of the most diverse cities in the world, with over 300 languages spoken each day!

Free Event – V&A Museum, South Kensington.

27th November 2017 – 6th January 2018.  Open 10am – 5:45pm.
