Flo Wilson in conversation with Cushla Donaldson – 13/04/2019

af we

In association with the exhibition, Prelude to a Requiem, currently installation at The Audio Foundation, we are pleased to invite you to an artist talk.

In conversation with Cushla Donaldson, Flo Wilson, will explore the themes underpinning her recent work, sound art as a field of practice, and much much more.


Flo’s installation uses sound and video projection to illustrate the liminal headspace that a person enters when he or she prepares to grieve. The work is a preemptive trace which vacillates between acts of love and futility. As her immersive installation slowly builds up into an ambient embrace, her piece asks us how different technologies extend or reduce our modes of being when we grieve. Wilson offers this work and space for people to attune to themselves, the world, and process grief alongside her.


Flo Wilson is a composer, producer and artist based in Tāmaki Makauru/ Auckland, Aotearoa/ New Zealand whose organic, experimental music creates emotive atmospheres to facilitate shared listening experiences.

Cushla Donaldson is an award-winning artist currently based in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aeotearoa. Through investigative and research processes that involve engagement with both technical and conceptual modes of inquiry, her work aims to illuminate routes to parity and what lies beyond currently inured hierarchical systems and structures. Donaldson gained her MFA from Goldsmiths College, University of London supported by the Anne Reid scholarship, and has exhibited in Australia, Europe and Japan.

She is a recent appointee to the Audio Foundation board of trustees.
