United In Stomach Flu, London Weeps
Performances exhibitionFrom Concrete to Liquid to Spoken Worlds to the Word
Performance held on July 7, 2017, on the occasion of the exhibition From Concrete to Liquid to Spoken Worlds to the Word.
United In Stomach Flu, London Weeps is a reading from Cally Spooner’s novel in progress, interspersed with some unwritten thoughts for 2017, on states of rehearsal, Galileo’s telescope, out-of-work speech writers, sweat, shame, structured reality, fake news, false tears and outsourcing. In collaboration with Michelango Miccolis.
Cally Spooner’s (born in 1983) work arrives in a space where references to books, theoretical treatises, films, pop songs or talk shows find themselves arranged in unsynced forms: as live productions, film installations, choreography, sound, as well as fiction, readings and scripts. Arriving from a training in philosophy and landing somewhere between stable, formal compositions and living, social events, her work prods and questions the hierarchies between those who hold power and those who do not.
