24 Nov-4 March. Experimental composer, performer and sound designer Nathaniel Mann stages an installation centred around the lightweight whistles attached to the tail feathers of carrier pigeons.
Used traditionally as method for deterring predators, the flute-like whistles also create a hauntingly beautiful sound. Mann's installation features his 3-D printed whistles in coloured plastic displayed alongside some historic Asian varieties.
