Andrew Kötting
Salon: Atmosphere

2016

Kötting has been running ‘salons’ for over 15 years, initially developed with the artist and filmmaker Clio Barnard, at KIAD (now the University for the Creative Arts). Early on, students were shown diverse moving image works to pique curiosity and provoke debate. The salons grew in an organic way to include readings, sound pieces, and the occasional performance. Invariably the sessions were quite loose and Kötting would respond to something that Clio presented, almost as a call and response device.

In the first of the two salons, Kötting will explore the notion of ‘atmosphere’, and how it might be experienced in a sonic, visual or textual way. Materials will be on hand but the structure will remain loose and improvised.
