Artists from NOISE joined the annual celebrations for Bury Light Night 2013, including a striking piece from the founding member of acclaimed rock music outfit 65daysofstatic.

On Friday 11th October Bury Light Night showcased the best of Bury through a unique programme of live music, performance, dance, storytelling, weird and wonderful art commissions and bustling markets.


Polinksi's workHandpicked from NOISEfestival.com, NOISE Artist Polinski (Paul Wolinski) is originally from Manchester and figurehead of the celebrated Sheffield instrumental rock band 65daysofstatic. He showcased his solo creative endeavours as Polinski with the video and audio installation ‘Breakdowns’.  Showing at Bury Art Museum, the video used the ‘Werners White’exhibition as a unique blank canvas to project this stunning audio-visual piece. Paul explained:

“It’s part of the confused visual collage made from salvaged glitches, broken renders, abused/ misused video software as well as graphics from collaborators (Caspar Newbolt, John De Lucca, Mr. Div). ‘Breakdowns’ is a new song and is about a very different kind of light to the one being celebrated in Bury, the human kind, and the distances we try and cover to stop it from going out.”

Joanna Randalljoanne randall

Joanne Randall is a Norwich University College of the Arts graduate now based in Ipswich and a self confessed ‘colour-scientist’. Her ‘Expressive Identities’ installation, in an empty retail space on Princes Parade, used freeform coloured plastic sets to produce unique portraits as an abstract exploration of the human form, which were then photographed and projected. Joanne added:

"I am so grateful for the opportunity, just by creating a portfolio with NOISEfestival.com it has given me the chance to see my work as a digital projection whereas usually I am very much hand crafted and a very much original hand made artist. I'm so interested to see my work in this media and context, in a very human setting at the Mill Gate."
