DORA GARCIA : THESE BOOKS WERE ALIVE; THEY SPOKE TO ME!
Feb 3 - Apr 23, 2017
An exhibition of printed matter and performance works by Barcelona-based artist Dora García. Her first institutional solo show in the UK, the exhibition coincides with the 20th PAGES International Contemporary Artists’ Book Fair in March.
García’s show will provide a retrospective look at her career-long production of book editions, book sculptures and the ongoing connection within her practice to popular literature, theatre and film. For These books were alive; they spoke to me! García will stage a new iteration of several performance works, some of which have never been performed in English or outside of Spain before.
‘These books were alive; they spoke to me,’ is a quote from François Truffaut’s 1966 dystopic cult film Fahrenheit 451 (based on Ray Bradbury’s novel of the same name). This literary reference opens up a framework for the exhibition and expanded programme, which features books about performance and performances about books.
