Hannan Jones: Surface bounce and cycles

For Channels, Jones’s work Surface bounce and cycles explored what is underneath the Union Canal – its edges, its depths, the mirage of animals and objects which float under its waters. Primarily centred around sound, the artist’s work employed listening as a means of exploring multiplicity. Through collecting sounds from along the canal – both under and above the water – the work allowed listeners to move through the riverbed of the canal, reassessing their understanding of the natural world’s relationship to the human world. It was sited around Harrison Road Bridge and Ashley Terrace Road Bridge, by Harrison Park.

Hannan Jones is an interdisciplinary artist, musician, and programmer of Algerian and Welsh origin raised on Binjerup Noongar Boodja, and based in Glasgow. Research led, Jones deep dives into concepts of hybridity, rhythms, and psycho-geography in response to cultural and social migration. Recent public presentations include Counterflows, Glasgow; CCA Annex; and New Radicalisms, (A)WAKE, Rotterdam.
