Performances

6.30pm and 8pm
William Mackrell, 'North South'

Presented as a vocal exchange of the words 'North' and 'South', this work considers differences of habit, dress and culture between the Northerners and Southerners across the globe, and the competitive instincts deriving from this.

William Mackrell is represented by Andipa Gallery, stand 48.

This performance takes place above Art Projects on Gallery Level 2.

 

7pm-8pm
Maeve Rendle, 'on summary in freedom'

In this work, Rendle considers the idea of thinking freely, and explores the point at which imaginative, free thinking is lost as literal interpretation takes over. Using a novel to explore ways in which reading and writing are simultaneously the tools and trappings of knowledge and creativity, she equates the mental space one occupies when reading, with the physical space one seeks out in a desire to think freely. This space becomes the freedom which enables inspiration. The critical question she asks is: how do we free ourselves in reality without losing our freedom in thought?

Maeve Rendle is represented by The International 3, stand P18a, Art Projects.

This performance takes place in the Talks & Discussions Theatre, Gallery Level 2, above Art Projects.
