Over the Horizon, is a haunting film installation by Emily Richardson, which explores the enigmatic landscape of Orford Ness, an ex military testing site – now nature reserve, situated on the East Anglian coastline. The soundtrack is by eminent wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson. (Frozen Planet, Life of Birds and other David Attenborough series).

Experience the sounds of birds bursting out of old vents, dripping water coming through open roofs, gulls alarm calls, the faint whisper of the World Service from a military past, and the sound of the sea in the shingle.

Free parking outside Saxmundham Library. * The film is 20 minutes long and will run on a continuous loop – drop in anytime from 7 pm. Refreshments provided.

Heads & Tails, by Abigail Lane, featuring guest works by Glenn Brown, Gavin Turk and Mathew Weir. A huge body of new fascinating works fill the Art Station’s different spaces. This is the first solo exhibition of Lane’s work in twenty years and therefore a significant opportunity to view this new, exciting and beautiful work.
