A livestreamed writing/drawing performance: Curator Nikita Gill will inscribe artist Jade Montserrat’s words directly onto the gallery wall.
Thursday 12 November 2020, 12pm–1pm
Free, booking essential
Marking the opening of Constellations: Care & Resistance, this performance explores the symbiotic relationship of trust held between artist and curator. Standing in for the artist, who cannot be present due to lockdown, Gill will inscribe Montserrat’s words onto the wall with charcoal. This act of live writing/drawing evokes intimacy despite the lack of physical proximity. Connecting via Zoom, Montserrat will read her prepared texts aloud, while Gill fixes her words in charcoal onto the wall. The performance invites us to consider what it means to inscribe text directly onto a gallery wall.
Please book your place on this online performance at Eventbrite.
