ESW is delighted to be part of the 2019 Edinburgh Art Festival, and present work by Caroline Achaintre, Adam Benmakhlouf and Lucy Wayman.

Adam Benmakhlouf has been commissioned to make a sound work for ESW’s beacon tower. His practice mixes painting, writing, print, sculpture, sound and video. The works he produces reveal hints of autobiography, friendship and intimacy, which can be tender, honest and candid.

This new work will be a collage of field recordings , and accumulated audio and music, gathered in a sound poem that reflects the ethos of ESW’s Schools Programme which Benmakhlouf has been assisting on for two-years. The programme introduces primary school pupils to the ideas and processes of contemporary art, demanding planning, spontaneity and responsiveness to the context and participants.

Benmakhlouf’s work will be installed in the beacon tower, an iconic landmark which completes ESW’s open courtyard. Influenced by signalling towers and factory cooling vents, the beacon tower is visible from the heights of the city centre.
