Exhibition of multi-screen musical video installations by Daniel Mudford of Balham.
Artist/filmmaker Daniel Mudford of Balham stages major exhibition of musical audio/visual multi-screen installations in the beautiful Grade 1 listed former Woolwich Magistrates’ Court building.

Courtrooms, jury room, office and holding cell will be re-purposed site-specifically in order to Give Crime a Holiday, and the people of Woolwich and beyond a beguiling, hypnotic, harmonious and occasionally humourous distraction.

Artworks were created for 50 discarded and freecycled TVs and DVD players and include a new work especially made for this exhibition: The Woolwich Chorus is a non-aligned choir made up of contributions sent via cameraphone from individuals and groups representing all aspects of the community across London, Britain and the World.

Another new work is the Thurston Moore Triptych, celebrating the dynamism, power and grace of the nicest & tallest man in Improvised Rock – the legendary guitarist and co-founder of Sonic Youth.

Also showing: Disappearing, an eight-screen installation 13 years – and over 100,000 miles – in the making, taking in the Arctic, New Zealand, Australia, Whitby and Chichester Harbour, amongst others.

Daniel Mudford of Balham is an artist and film-maker whose recent exhibitions include the inaugural Sofar Festival in Battersea, and public billboard actions around the country collectively entitled Palimpsest. Music credits range from recordings with The Sons of Silence and O Yuki Conjugate, to numerous soundtracks including the the romantic zombie comedy Shaun Of The Dead.
