Gender & Sexuality in Western Mythology

Verity will lead a sounding workshop where participants will collectively voice refrains from the selected texts. A soundscape will be built as a way to share and embody the knowledge.

Self as Siren

Come along to this Caraboo workshop led by Constance Fleuriot ( @grrrlgames ) and reinvent yourself as a mythical siren. We won’t be turning you into half bird / half woman but will be using simple techniques and materials to turn selfies into masks with echoes of our hidden selves. We’ll take photos, print selfies and layer with oil pastels to create alternative versions of ourselves as sirens. No drawing experience necessary.

Talk and film screening with exhibiting artist Jake Moore

Jake Moore employs computer animation, video and sound to consider the inadequacy of the human form in the face of our increasingly ubiquitous technological climate. Arising from the relationship he holds with his own ailing living body, previous practice envisions a newly synthesised digital body; a labour toward a machine-like perfection in form, surface and movement. As the natural rhythm of the body becomes lost within a mechanical haze, he explores the point in which this progression becomes polluted, distorting the body into something ‘Other’. Within recent research, digital world-building becomes a tool to construct speculative utopias — sites that transcend all restriction in which ideas of identity can be completely reframed.

Jake will talk about his his practice and present two film works which form a trilogy with his film Eternal Relics  exhibitited in Songs Of The Sirens.

Saturday 22nd June, 2 – 3pm
