Andrew Kotting
Salon: Atmosphere

Andrew 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.

This recording is of the first of the two salons Kötting presented at Whitstable Biennale 2016. Kötting explores the notion of ‘atmosphere’, and how it might be experienced in a sonic, visual or textual way.
