The Forest of London

Andaz Liverpool Street Masonic Temple

Venue: Andaz Hotel Lounge

Once a forested valley, there remain only seven sites in London considered to be true Ancient Woodland. Sound artist Gawain Hewitt and photographer Emile Holba imagine a different history, exploring a fictional Thames Valley that was never colonised and where the native woodland of this corner of the British Isles remains undisturbed. The artists have visited these seven sites, now threatened by Ash Dieback, collecting their sonic signatures and piecing them together to create a unique immersive aural installation that transports listeners to an alternative history to discover what The Forest of London might look and sound like in 2013.
