Nov 19, 2018 7:00pm - 8:30pm talk/event
Young and old, noting else ever. What happened here? Slower than…
 
The slow abrogation of the… is a new performance by Frank Wasser. Two subjects displaced by their own constructed subjectivity confront the objectivity of time and architecture through a dialogue of slow choreography, listening and an acknowledgment of a failed common language. The subjects directly address the act of being observed in a place of historical observation, the exhibition.
 
This event has been commissioned for Survey.
It is free to attend. Booking is required via Eventbrite.

JERWOOD/FVU AWARDS 2019 : GOING, GONE.
Apr 3 - Jun 2, 2019
Webb-Ellis, Richard Whitby.
The Jerwood/FVU Awards 2019: Going, Gone premieres two newly commissioned moving-image installations by Webb-Ellis and Richard Whitby, the recipients of this sixth edition of the Awards.
Responding to the curatorial theme of Going, Gone, the two works act as a barometer of the uncertain present (and unclear future) of contemporary Britain in the lead-up to its declared exit from the EU next spring.
