Magda Stawarska-Beavan is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice is primarily concerned with the evocative and immersive qualities of sound. She is interested in how soundscape orients us and subconsciously embeds itself in our memories of place, enabling us to construct personal recollections and offering the possibility of conveying narrative to listeners who have never experienced a location.
Her outdoor public installations were shown as part of the TONSPUR programme in MFRU, Foundation Son:DA, Maribor Old Town hall, Slovenia (2017); Kapelica Gallery Ljubljana,
Slovenia (2016); 28th Exposition of New Music Brno Festival (2015) and in MQ21 TONSPUR_passage / Q21 MQ, Vienna (2013). In 2011 she was commissioned to produce a sound installation in Preston City Centre, UK by In Certain Places (The Arcade).
