World Is Sudden: Part I

Saturday 24th September / 9:30PM @ Palace Green Pavilion

A live event devised by Giles Bailey & CIRCA Projects with guests: Eleanor Wright, Kathryn Elkin, Rene McBrearty, Susie Green & Simon Bayliss, Terry.

Inspired by the collateral, incompatible and sudden world described in Louis MacNiece’ s 1935 poem Snow, each event brings together a breadth of live practice, spanning performance, music and sound alongside disparate moving image works, internet video phenomena and archival material. Staged in a specially designed set the works included will be presented as a continuous sequential flow resisting the tyranny of prescribed thematics and embracing “the drunkenness of things being various,” however modestly.

In 2016-17 Giles Bailey & CIRCA Projects encourage you to take a closer look at one artist's practice in the extended site of the North East, through an articulate program that moves between the formats of exhibition, publication, event and conversation. Aiming to overcome redundant superstructures - replacing them with a leaner relationship between artwork and viewer, producer and artist. Version 3 (201 words)CIRCA Projects, based in North East England, develop art projects for different sites - considering the locations and formats used to exhibiting art as integral to contemporary art's meaning and agency.
