Laura Bartlett Gallery is pleased to announce Works on Paper a solo
exhibition by Elizabeth McAlpine.

The exhibition consists of a performance titled Words & Music (Headlines),
which was first enacted at the Barbican as part of the Surreal House
exhibition this summer. Words & Music attempts to re-imagine the written
word through sound, using an upright piano and five piano players playing
simultaneously. Using the headlines of today from the major newspapers,
McAlpine has created a score assigning a key to each letter or punctuation
point. The words from the headlines are then played as a chord. The
resulting sounds reflect the randomness of everyday life, but patterns
emerge that portray the pace and tone of the news of the day. Words & Music
is an experiment in an acoustic representation of the current moment.

The performance will be reenacted on two other occasions during the course
of the exhibition both each to very different acoustic effect.

In conjunction with the series of performances, new works titled News Lines
are drawings on newsprint paper made by colour carbon paper traces. Single
colour lines trace the image of frames found in the front page news stories
of the day.

With special thanks to the following performers:
Viktor Sugeng, Yung-Yee Chan, Andrew Charity, Joseph Houston, Zubin Kanga,
Chris Ma, Matthew McCombie, Callista Nurse, Cliodna Shanahan, Laura Stevens,
Katherine Tinker, Emmanuelle Turbelin, Edward Waktins, Alex Wilson.

Our thanks also to Anna Ursinus, Ben Hunter and Matthew Wilkinson
