MICHAEL BIRD: THE KITCHEN SINK TOO ARTIST'S VOICES, ARTIST'S LIVES  talk/event
Click to enlarge Apr 25, 2019 6:30pm - 8:30pm
We often know past artists through the products of their creativity, but what did they sound like, what did they have to say and how does this relate to their artworks? Writer and broadcaster, Michael Bird, will delve into the Artists’ Lives sound archive to present a fascinating variety of voices and life stories from the modern
British art scene. As Goodison Fellow at the British Library, Michael has had unparalleled access to thousands of hours of interviews with artists recorded since 1990.
 
From the surrealist painter Eileen Agar, to Peter Blake, David Nash, & Phyllida Barlow, we hear from artists whose life stories together create an extraordinarily rich tapestry of 20th-century art in Britain. Copies of Michael Bird’s book Studio Voices: Art and Life in 20th-century Britain will be available to purchase on the night.

THE TROJAN CUNT - MULTIVOCAL FLUX  talk/event
Click to enlarge Apr 27, 2019 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Mimosa House presents "Multivocal Flux" with RERQ and Verity Spott - the second session of our Bilingual French-English Reading Salon organised by Theodora Domenech and Sabrina soyer.
 
RERQ is a Paris-based network of dyke and nonbinary authors whose texts are queer, raw, tender, and explicit. Drawing from an aesthetic of flux that samples pornographic codes, experimental literary protocols, and theatrical presentation, RERQ writes, reads, and performs what is too rarely represented. RERQ explodes sad genres and tired syntax, refuses the typography of recognizable bodies, and intervenes in official literatures. RERQ is a nonstop neon trip that blurs individual experience and invokes a collective voice from which to recount collisions within gender and sexuality.
 
Verity Spott is a Brighton-based poet whose texts are intensive immersions into characters and landscapes that refuse to conform identity binaries and its authoritarian discourses. Its poetry is prophetic, muscular and goes everywhere the body has been shut up. Among other books, Verity Spott is the author of Transmanifestos and Click Away Close Door Say, and is part of a free jazz music band called Threads.
 
Kindly supported by Arts Council England and Fluxus Art Projects

Pour la deuxième session, nous invitons le collectif RERQ et Verity Spott à partager leur travail en cours.
 
RERQ est un réseau d’autriX lesbiennes et non binaires basé.e.s à Paris dont les textes sont queer, crus, tendres et explicites. Puisant dans une esthétique de flux qui combine codes pornographiques, protocols de littérature expérimentale et représentation théâtrale, RERQ écrit, lit et performe ce qui est trop peu représenté. RERQ explose les genres tristes et la syntaxe fatiguée, refuse la typographie des corps reconnaissables, et fait irruption dans la littérature officielle. RERQ est un “neon trip” sans fin qui brouille l’expérience individuelle et invoque une voix collective depuis laquelle redire les collisions internes au genre et à la sexualité.
 
Verity Spott est un.e poète basé.e à Brighton dont les textes sont des immersions intensives au sein de personnages et de paysages qui refusent de se conformer à des identités binaires et ses discours autoritaires. Sa poésie est prophétique, musculaire et verbeuse et se déplace en tout lieu où le corps est bâillonné. Ielle est l’auteur.e, entre autres, de Trans
manifesto et Click Away Close Door Say et fait partie d’un groupe de free jazz appelé Threads.

RICHARD WHITBY IN CONVERSATION WITH NATASHA HOARE  talk/event

Richard Whitby in conversation with Natasha Hoare, Curator at Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, discussing his latest moving image work The Lost Ones, commissioned for Jerwood/FVU Awards 2019: Going, Gone.
 
The Lost Ones follows a disparate group of individuals who are waiting to have their residency status assessed. They are people in limbo – whose personal circumstances or economic situations have been suddenly re-evaluated and whose future status now seems conditional on a test that they need to pass.
 
Richard Whitby is a video and performance artist, who lives and works in London. He often working with collaborators producing music, costumes and objects. Whitby studied at Wimbledon College of Art, Slade School of Art and took part in the LUX Associate Artists Programme 2012- 2013, completing a PhD in Humanities and Cultural Studies from the London Consortium in 2016. Recent presentations include GIVE GOOD, Twentyone, Southend (2018), The Jump Room, The Old Waterworks, Southend (2017), Jerwood Staging Series, Jerwood Arts, London (2017), Corrupt Blood Incident, South Kiosk, London. His book The Jump Room was published by The Old Waterworks in 2018. He is a member of the National Executive Committee for Artists’ Union England.
 
Natasha Hoare is Curator at Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, London. She was previously a Curator at Witte de With Centre for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam (2014-18) and Assistant Curator for the Marrakech Biennale (2012-14). Independent curatorial projects include An unpredictable expression of human potential, Sharjah Biennale 13 (2017) and Self-Reflection; Mark Wallinger at the Freud Museum, London (2017). As a writer she has contributed to Frieze, ArtReview, Ibraaz, amongst others, and is contributing editor of ExtraExtra. She is the author of The New Curator (2016) published by Laurence King.
 
This talk is programmed as part of the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2019: Going, Gone exhibition, featuring two new moving-image commissions by Webb-Ellis and Richard Whitby. The galleries are open late before the event (5-7pm) giving you the chance to enjoy our exhibitions and refreshments.
