Take Three – coming soon
Take One / Take Two / Take Three is a broadcast project by Performance as Publishing hosted at Eastside Projects and broadcast by this is tomorrow. Over three events, nine new artists’ performances will be staged to camera for broadcast in the presence of a live audience. The series plays with the transposition of ‘liveness’ and the event in a digital context through framing and editing. Over the three events the works will put forward different takes on repetition, transformation and accumulation. It is also a continuation of Performance as Publishing’s ongoing investigation into text, writing and language in contemporary art, specifically in performance. Between the live performances, a specially selected set of artist films will be screened, chosen during Performance as Publishing’s residency at LUX Artists’ Moving Image.
The participating artists are Eddie Peake, Marie Toseland & Sophie Mallett, Phil Coy, Nicole Bachmann and Ruth Beale.
The events are part of ‘Production Show’, 2016-2018, and performances take place amongst Richard Woods’ exhibition ‘Duck Weave’.
Take 3, Friday 6 May, with performances by Ruth Beale, Marie Toseland & Sophie Mallett and Nicole Bachmann.
Broadcasts approx 7-8.30pm.
At Eastside Projects, doors open at 6.30pm and close at 7pm.
Rehearsals are open to the public during normal gallery hours Thursday and Friday, 12-5pm.
