Hannah Smith Slightly OdwayOpening: Wednesday 8 April, 6-8pm Dates: 8 – 25 April 2015
‘Slightly Odway’ presents a series of arrangements exploring musical equipment made redundant by their owners. Borrowing from Jebidiah’s 1997 album title, ‘Slightly Odway’ reflects upon awkward relationships of sentimentality within the intrinsic value of ownership and music materiality.
