Patrick Pound will explore the vast holdings of the Grainger museum and activate the collection with a poetic responsive intervention, rethinking Grainger, the man, the musician, and the way he is intimately portrayed through his extraordinary things.
“The Grainger Museum is a marvellous piece of eccentric musical biography. I am interested in how the museum tells stories through its collections of things. I am going to add some of my collected things to those of the museum and put to the test how musical sound might be held and expressed through otherwise ‘silent’ things. I am wanting to unpack the way things hold and express ideas as if on a dare.” Patrick Pound
