SNAP invited Wysing's Director Donna Lynas to nominate an artist for inclusion in this year's exhibition. Cally Spooner has been commissioned to make a new work for SNAP 2013 which marks the centenary of Benjamin Britten.

Cally Spooner

Cally Spooner was in-residence at Wysing in 2011, in the Department of Wrong Answers, alongside Rob Filby, Francesco Pedraglio, Laure Prouvost and Giles Round. She was included in the exhibition The Starry Rubric Set in 2012.  

Recent solo exhibitions and performances include Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Seven Thirty Till Nine, Shanaynay, Paris, France (2012); Cally Spooner: Footnote 5, (with Dulcie Lewis and Peter Joslyn), ICA, London, UK (2012); ‘It’s 1957, and the Press Release Still Isn’t Written’, Hermes und der Pfau, WCW Gallery, Hamburg, Germany (2011).

SNAP was launched in June 2011 as part of the Aldeburgh Festival’s visual arts programme. Based at the home of Aldeburgh Music at Snape Maltings on the Suffolk coast, SNAP presents leading international artists alongside some lesser-known emerging talents, many with connections to the area.

Two artists who now live and work in Suffolk, Abigail Lane and Sarah Lucas, have been instrumental to the initiation of SNAP, and in assembling the artists involved. Sadie Coles, part-time resident in the area, was also integral to the project’s instigation. The shows are developed and coordinated by Abigail Lane in association with Aldeburgh Music. SNAP 2013 will celebrate the centenary of Benjamin Britten, co founder of the Aldeburgh Festival.
