Beatrice Dillon presents Taut Line

23 Feb 2018

Somerset House Studios artist Beatrice Dillon introduces Taut Line for the first episode in our new podcast series. 

A multi-channel sound installation, Taut Line was co-commissioned in partnership with Abandon Normal Devices. The piece premiered at The Great Cave, Peak Cavern Derbyshire in September as part of the AND 2017 festival programme. At Somerset House, Dillon reconfigured the work for The Deadhouse, a rarely accessible underground tunnel running beneath the courtyard, clad with headstones dating from the 1600s, the remnants of a chapel that was formally located on the site.
