Rob Flint : Autumn 2014 

Superlative Flock

Rob Flint is an artist who often works collaboratively. He uses voice, spoken and written. With Christine Sullivan, he has created a series of works exploring description and narration, including 'The Bill Burroughs Memorial Choir', and 'Conversation Piece' in 'Hlysnan' at Casino Luxembourg, in the City of Luxembourg in summer 2014. His audio work, 'Flock Mnemonics' was commissioned for the Lincoln Collection's sound wall, to accompany Danica Maier's Stitch and Peacock, in the Collection Museum.


Flock Mnemonics can be heard daily from the 27th September 2014 - 11 January 2015 at the Collection Museum, Lincoln at 10:30am, 1pm and 3:30pm on the Collection’s sound wall. Made in response to the exhibition Stitch and Peacock. The work examines the way humans understand and memorise bird calls through the use of 'mnemonics' that mimic the birds' cry in words, sometimes even naming birds such as 'Chiffchaff', 'Crow', or 'Tit' in imitation of their cry.
