PERFORMANCES AND LIVE ART CONTRIBUTIONS 2019
The artistic programme re-staged existing performances responding to the curatorial theme in and around Guys Campus [See programme for details] and premiered three newly commissioned works.
Mother and Child Machine by artist, researcher and architect Leni Dothan, who challenges the mother's role in Christian iconography and biblical narratives as they were depicted in Renaissance art. [Commissioned by Procreate Project]
'Giving Birth To Beauty by Himali Singh Soin. The work re-imagines the language of Diotima's speech in Plato's Symposium as one that proposes a non-dual, queer way of being. It enters into conversation with the Greek Urn from Keats' poem--a former surgeon at King's College--in order to labour away at a post-human thought process. What would the vessel think? How do we occupy the liminal even as the water breaks? [Commissioned by Birth Rites Collection]
' Maintaining the future' by Laura Yuile 'Once you care, you’re future is a new performance exploring the figure of the child as representative of “the future”, and the problems this representation poses for non-binary perspectives and those who cannot – or choose not to – reproduce.' [Commissioned by Birth Rites Collection]
* The three works have be acquired by Birth Rites Collection
