For You, Only You

Boyce, Sonia and Karikis, Mikhail (2007) For You, Only You. [Performance]

Type of Research: Performance
Creators: Boyce, Sonia and Karikis, Mikhail

‘For you, only you’ is a multi-media performance that Sonia Boyce conceived and organized as a collaboration with Greek singer and composer Mikhail Karikis.

The installation/performance was part of a series of three exhibitions 'Triple Echo', of new audio-visual works (by Sonia Boyce, Sophy Rickett, Terry Smith) in three separate gallery installations. My installation takes the form of a three screen, audio-visual work based on ‘documentation’ of a previous live performance held in the Chapel of Magdalen College, Oxford.

My conception for this work brought together the sacred choral work 'Tu solus qui facis mirabila (You alone can do wonders)' by Josquin Desprez (1440-1521) with the contemporary voice of Mikhail Karikis together with the early music choral group Almire.

My objective with this project was to explore and transgress the boundary between Renaissance devotional music and the context of the 21st century bringing together distinct styles and forms into a new unity. This continues my artistic and research concern with devotional forms and contemporary music that has underpinned much of my recent work.

The initial collaboration was supported through an invited collaboration with The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford, as well as a partnership with the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Sea; Locus+, Newcastle upon Tyne; Milton Keynes Gallery; and The Model Arts and Niland Gallery, Sligo; and with the support of Arts Council England.
