Arnolfini Performance Writing Weekend

Posted on May 2, 2012

PW12 is happening this weekend at the Arnolfini: three days of performance writing events, discussion and exhibition. I’m contributing one interpretation of ‘performance writing’ in a single-screen adaptation (below) of my Modern Art Oxford work Keeping Time, playing throughout the weekend in the exhibition space.

On a single screen the two points are more clearly in dialogue with one another, and the relationship between them is more readily anthropomorphized than before. It’s all in the timing isn’t it.

From the Arnolfini website:

The weekend comprises performances, readings, a workshop on Writing & Mapping, ‘events on the plinth’, an exhibition and discussions about multi- and inter-medial writing. We will be considering how, as the printed book comes under threat, new writing will be made, displayed and talked about. Click here for full details.
