RIRKRIT TIRAVANIJA
Jun 6, 2019 - Jun 6, 2020
The ICA unveils a newly commissioned permanently sited work by Rirkrit Tiravanija. The work will occupy the alcove in the common area of the ICA, between the Lower Gallery and the Theatre, transforming it into a new social space comprising a sake bar, seating and tables crafted in Tiravanija’s studio in Chiang Mai, set within a painted sunrise and sunset. This new work marks Tiravanija’s return to the ICA, following his participation in the landmark exhibition Real Time in 1993.
 
untitled 2019 (the form of the flower is unknown to the seed) (2019) will be the first permanently sited work by Tiravanija in London. It will be available to visit on an ongoing basis from 7 June.
 
A special programme celebrating the opening of untitled 2019 (the form of the flower is unknown to the seed) will take place on 6 June, open to ICA Friends and Red Members.

Click to enlargeCOLIN SELF: SIBLINGS (SOLO VERSION)
Nov 02, 2019 9:00pm talk/event
'I used to live as an anomaly / no explanation biologically.'
 
'Siblings (SOLO VERSION)' is the final instalment of Colin Self’s ‘Elation’ series, a six-part opera about queer family and global transfiguration.
 
Inspired by the work of Donna Haraway '(Cyborg Manifesto, Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene)', 'Siblings' places a non-biological family at its centre. Bonded by curiosity and caring, the characters generate ways of collectively coming together on a damaged planet.
 
Oscillating between heartfelt intimacy and frenzied rave, 'Siblings' is a proposal for interdependence, critical joy and an expansive sense of being. Ecstatic voices and sounds knot to form new ideals of kinship, emerging as horizontal relations for multi-species flourishing.
 
'Siblings' is a mobile, mutable production and is performed with humour, drama and ferocity.
 
This is the first performance in London of this work.
Colin Self is an artist, composer and choreographer based in New York and Berlin. He creates music and performance pieces designed to expand consciousness, trouble binaries and play with the boundaries of perception. Self works with a broad range of communities using voices, bodies and computers as tools to interface with biological and technological software.'
