Hyewon Suk and Owen Fender present an immersive sound installation As Above So Below in association with Wells Art Contemporary 2018. Selected Bath Spa University MA were included in the exhibition curated by Gary Sangster at the beautiful Wells Cathedral.

Hungarian sound artist Zsofia Szucs project, titled Sound Jar Project, was commissioned by WAC and shown in the Long Gallery alongside the Wells Art Contemporary Exhibition at the Bishop’s Palace. Visitors to the Wells Art Contemporary Exhibition were able to sample sounds from Szucs ‘stall’ captured from different locations around Wells. The aim of this project was to engage the public sonically with Wells and to raise awareness of the importance of listening.
