For this event artist Alexis Hudgins will be performing a durational reading of her novella Keep the Event Open.
Keep the Event Open is an autobiographical novella that documents the interior and exterior experience of becoming a mother. Architectural details mix with memory, events, theory and criticism to look inwards into the life of a woman building a family alongside the renovation of an architecturally designed artist studio, while simultaneously peering outwards into the neighborhood and world that surrounds her. Description of both real and imagined spaces allow for an examination of how creativity, violence and transformation occur as an extension of design and bodies, turning over how these experiences can be processed, examined and re-communicated.
The audio of the performance will be recorded for anyone who is unable to attend the full reading.
This event forms part of Bloc's Salon 19 public programme and continues the themes present within its exhibition Into The Spotlight by Alison J Carr.
Visitors are encouraged to consider bringing along an item to donate to the local Foodbank – basic toiletries and food (packets, tinned or dried).
