A unique opportunity to experience the artist Catherine Yass’ latest work ‘Aeolian Piano’ at the Royal Institute of British Architects.
The panel discussion at 7pm in the Jarvis Auditorium is ticketed.
For one special evening the Florence Hall in the RIBA will host Catherine Yass’ latest work ‘Aeolian Piano’. Yass, who was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2002, works primarily with film and photography. She describes her films as temporal drawings, often capturing architectural sites from unusual vantage points. In 2002 her film ‘Flight’ documented BBC Broadcasting House from a remote-controlled helicopter and she has also filmed locations such as building sites at Canary Wharf in her film ‘Descent’ (2002) by lowering a camera upside down through the morning mist. ‘Aeolian Piano’ was developed with architectural producer Francesca Hughes.
Alongside the screening in the Florence Hall, a selection of RIBA and BBC archive collection photographs will be on display showing the BBC Television Centre in construction and later in use by BBC staff. A panel discussion between Catherine Yass; Robert Seatter, Head of BBC History; Francesca Hughes, partner of Hughes Meyer Studio and author; and Alice Cicolini, White Noise will take place in the Jarvis Auditorium.
