Newly conceived installation that incorporates sound, texts, sculptures and architectural interventions from Vietnam born artist Sung Tieu, in her first major institutional solo exhibition in the UK.

Tieu's new body of work continues her ongoing investigation into the psychological dimension of warfare, acoustic weaponry and its relationship to Cold War ideologies. At the heart of the exhibition, a new soundscape manipulates material related to the so-called Havana Syndrome, which manifested in unexplained disorders and brain injuries resembling concussions, and was believed to be caused by a sound weapon. For In Cold Print, the artist exposed herself to a reconstruction of the acoustic attack to record her cerebral activity and translate it both visually and acoustically.

The multi-channel sound work is conceived in collaboration with composer Ville Haimala, and neuroscientist and psychologist Christian Sumner, with the support of Frederike Vanheusden and Rob Morris, all of whom are based at Nottingham Trent University.
