Haefligers Cottage

Virginia Hilyard will use her residency at Haefliger's Cottage to investigate the potential for ‘sonic memories'. Hilyard will collect a series of sound recordings from inside the cottage and its adjacent buildings, the surrounding gardens and nearby countryside to develop a project exploring sound, space and memory. Introducing sounds recorded during her recent residency in Paris, Hilyard will create sound scapes that explore the tenuous relationship between reality and illusion, actuality and memory.
