Sapsucker Sounds – Annie Dunning at ARTsPLACE


Sapsucker Sounds a sound installation by Annie Dunning

Opening Sunday, July 17, 1 – 3 pm, with an artist talk at 1:30 pm.

ARTsPLACE is excited to announce that Ontario based Artist, Annie Dunning will be installing her project, Sapsucker Sounds at ARTsPLACE Gallery, Annapolis Royal. The show will run through August 21.

Sapsucker Sounds is an installation of objects and interactive sound sculptures that offer an opportunity to experience sound generated by a conflation of human and woodpecker culture. The work began with a found log, filled with holes made by a Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker. Each sculpture is a different attempt to interpret the marks the bird has “recorded”.

Sapsuckers, like other woodpeckers, use their hammering to delineate their territorial range as well as find food. In addition to using hollow trees, they have been known to hammer on metal chimney flashing and road signs, taking advantage of the amplification these introduced items offer. This development in woodpecker culture that can expand an individual bird’s territory highlights the potential for inter-species cultural influence that must apply to human culture as well.

Annie Dunning is a multi-disciplinary artist and her work is primarily focused on sculpture and installation. She is interested in examining the intersecting elements of culture and the natural world to create new hybrid ideas. Annie received her BFA from Mount Allison University, NB, and her MFA from the University of Guelph, ON.
