Join us on 7 October for our third set of “artists at home” — selected from our rolling open call for proposals. Real lives, real stories, real homes.
Domestic (Oct 2020) is one of Manchester Wire’s Free things to do this week.
Ali Wilson · SEXY SUZY
Suzy is trying to remember how her husband died — there are clues all over the place, but she can’t quite piece them together. Missy the cat has all the answers, but won’t tell.
Suzy records her findings in a video at the end of every day, for her future self to recap.
She’ll lose herself if she doesn’t.
Elly Rutherford & Fanis Sakellariou · Excuse me, you’ve dropped your spring onions
Two isolated individuals burst into kitchenware warfare whilst dancing a polka.
Music: Do Your Thing by Basement Jaxx · I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor · Ievan Polkka by Loituma from Bleach (anime TV series)
Helena Ascough · Appearance Disappearance
A new spoken word piece that questions materialism, appearance, and disability — spoken from the comfort of a wardrobe.
Jane Munro · Four Feet and Kitchen
A fragment of a single parent family kitchen (their feet) in Covid times.
Performed by Jane Munro & Ella · Camera & Artist Assistant: Colleen Bartley
Madame Zucchini · Lockdown Legume Experience
Mme Zucchini entertains & engages with vegetables — she’ll be introducing you to some of her veg characters inspired by topical events/politics, and exploring the potential for the use of vegetables in the democratic process.
Feel free to bring a vegetable or two, perhaps a knife and some cocktail sticks, to make your own effigy should you so wish.
Maryam Hashemi · A summoning
Layer by layer in her den she unwinds and clears, summoning what lurks beneath…
Pinchbeck & Smith · At the edge of the world
Two artists. 24 miles apart. 24 days. 24 photos. 24 texts.
A eulogy to lost lives, lost time, and lost contact.
Inspired by At the Edge of the World by Jean Mohr & John Berger.
Music by Chris Cousin · Visuals by Adam York Gregory
Victoria Firth · Performance Meditations for the Touch Starved — Part 1
An opportunity to join Victoria in a ritual act of holding one’s own hand.
A literal and metaphorical response to our need for contact and intimacy during times of social separation and vulnerability.
Music from www.bensound.com
Hosted by Peader Kirk.
