Under the Rose: Architecture and Secrecy at Speke Hall

  • Sat, 30 Mar 2019
  • 2.00 PM - 4.00 PM

Serena Korda discusses the making of Under the Rose, part of her Trust New Art for the National Trust and Bluecoat commission at Speke Hall.

This new sound work made for the hall’s courtyard, was inspired by the acoustics of secrecy, charting a history of observation, eavesdropping and the hiding of Catholic priests at the Tudor mansion. It questions if, in our highly visual culture, our ability to listen has dwindled.  

Join us for fascinating talks by artist Serena Korda and Dr. Rachel Willie, Senior lecturer at Centre for English Literature & Cultural History Liverpool John Moores University and author of book Staging the Revolution: drama, reinvention and history, 1647-72. Willie has a particular interest in early modern soundscapes, publicness, and music. 

The event will also include an opportunity to experience Korda's sound work currently installed at Speke Hall.

This event takes place at Bluecoat. 

Tickets £4/£3
