WATCH: Recordings for the Birds by Amy Franceschini – FutureFarmers | Artes Mundi 7
The weekly performances Recordings for the Birds were part of The Seed Journey (2016-17), exhibited at National Museum Cardiff during Artes Mundi 7. Local actors performed listening sessions based on stories recorded by the Seed Journey crew. A small wooden bird, carved from driftwood found on the journey, formed the centre of each performance. In Recordings for the Birds stories were handed down from crew, to actor, from actor to bird and visitors. The telling, and re-telling, of stories is an act of remembering and transmission. Amy Franceschini and FutureFarmers invited audiences to become part of our collective memory.
