MAT COLLISHAW, TRACEY EMIN, DAMIÁN ORTEGA
Abigail Lane together with Aldeburgh Music has selected works by three contemporary artists to be installed at Snape Maltings for the period of the Aldeburgh Festival, 2015.
Each work has been chosen for a specific and relevant site.
Mat Collishaw’s still lives, a series of framed prints each titled Last Meal on Death Row, 2012, will hang in the Concert Hall Gallery, between the concert hall and the bar/ restaurant. His work Whispering Weeds will be positioned in the Dovecote Studio close to the reed beds. Damián Ortega’s work, Through /True Stone, 2012, will be on the Hepworth Lawn in proximity to Barbara Hepworth’s permanently sited work, The Family of Man. Roman Standard, 2005, a bronze sculpture by Tracey Emin - a tiny bird atop a 13ft pole, will be installed near to the estuary and it’s famous ornithological habitat.
Preparations are underway for an ambitious project for SNAP Art at the Aldeburgh Festival 2016. We propose to exhibit works by a number of artists in private homes, public and possibly commercial venues within the village of Snape. Watch this space!

Anya Gallaccio has been commissioned to create new works inspired by some of the earliest experiments in aerial photography and the air bombing tests that took place during World War One on the harsh landscape of Orford Ness, which is a remote shingle spit on the Suffolk coast, 6 miles from Snape Maltings – home to the Aldeburgh festival.
Her installations at both locations will comprise of images made using extreme magnification to depict the inner landscapes of imploded material taken from the site of those early experiments.
Now an unusual National Trust nature reserve, Orford Ness has a mysterious military past that has resulted in a landscape formed of strange derelict buildings and debris as well as the huge reserve of vegetated shingle for which it is famous. Orford Ness is an extraordinary place that is constantly changing and eroding – it has qualities that are at the heart of Anya’s art. Her works are frequently transient, beautiful, sometimes strange and unruly. For more information about this see here.
A PROJECT BY LILY HUNTER GREEN FOR SNAP, Art at the Aldeburgh Festival 2014
Bee Composed. A piano and a hive of bees
is an audio-visual art installation comprised of an upright piano, which has two beehive-like structures emerging from its top corners. Projected within the hive-like structures, film footage will simulate the activity of bees. The footage will be taken directly from a second piano, located close by but not accessible to visitors. The artist will have established this concurrently as a working and active beehive.
It will be located on the Henry Moore Lawn at Snape Maltings for the duration of SNAP 2014.
Lily Hunter Green is a sound installation artist and contemporary composer who lives and works between Brighton and Suffolk. For more information about this see here.
In the last two years SNAP was delighted to collaborate with Aspall Cyder. Five fabulous limited edition artist bottles, using images by internationally renowned artists Glenn Brown and Ryan Gander were produced in 2012. Last year to celebrate the Britten centenary, Aspall again produced a collectibles series featuring four Britten-inspired Maggi Hambling bottle labels derived from her works in the SNAP 2013 exhibition. The Festival of Britten Still Suffolk Cyder was launched on 8th June at SNAP Art at the Aldeburgh Festival. For details visit www.aspall.co.uk.
For SNAP 2014, we are pleased to announce the continued support and sponsorship by Aspall Cyder.
