For the third series of Parallel Voices at Siobhan Davies Studios, multi-media artist Carsten Nicolai brought together, in a series of panel discussions and events, personalities who form a missing link – artists and performers who have served as bridging figures in the arts, crossing or simply ignoring boundaries.
To accompany the programme Carsten Nicolai presents a specially commissioned light installation, monitor consisting of custom made neon tubes. Conceived to create a link between the inside and outside of Siobhan Davies Studios, it was mounted on the façade of the building, its light play communicating movement and sound.
