January 14th featured artist:
Jane Garver Foley (b*1985, New Orleans) is a sculptor, performer, and sound artist living in Atlanta, Georgia (US). Her sound works explore isolation versus connectivity in public spaces, beginning with subtle repeated experiments in deep listening and reciprocity. She uses sculpture and performance also as frameworks for interaction, creating physical spaces for unscripted involvement, favoring communication and process over controlled outcomes. Jane Foley has created site-specific public sound sculptures for the Architecture Triennale in Lisbon, Portugal and La Friche Belle de Mai in Marseille, France with Zurich-based Sound Development City, as well as produced a sound composition for Saout Radio that played in taxicabs throughout the 5th Marrakech Biennale in Morrocco. In Atlanta, she has created public works for Flux Projects, the Atlanta Beltline, WonderRoot, and the Goat Farm, among others. Following a recent residency at Atelierhaus Salzamt in Linz, Austria, she has been composing from layered field recordings, chasing ever-elusive images of transitional sounds in built spaces.
Atlanta Contempoary will provide free coffee from our sponsor Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters- Atlanta. We recommend bringing a mat, water bottle and anything additional that will make you feel comfortable during your practice. There will be a few additional mats available for those that do not have one. Movement Love is an inclusive class, accessible to those practicing at many different levels.
