Lower Reach Sounding is an extraordinary performance using ships’ horns by twice Turner Prize-nominated artist Richard Wilson RA.

With seventeen air and mechanical horns and a chattering plumage of signal flags, Cultureship De Walvisch will sing her own sea shanty, calling to the very fabric of the Thames and its iconic architecture as she retraces the cargo vessel journeys of the past.
