PROUST AND THE PLEASURE GARDEN AT THE RED GALLERY 20/11/2015

  • RED GALLERY 1-3 Rivington Street London, England, EC2A 3DT United Kingdom (map)

Friday, November 20, 2015 - 

18:30 to 21:30

AntiUniversity NOW! - HugRoux Present

Three female artists & drummers come together to play flower child hunters in an installed botanical and synthesized scenography. This performance/installation incorporates sound, image, text and spoken word/song.

Words drift from chanting the latin names of flowers to the narration of notes from books of wildflowers, into personal writings which, at times reference Proust's experience of nature in À la Recherche du Temps Perdu...

Proust and the Pleasure Garden is a durational event, allowing the installation to be activated in multiple ways, through numerous participatory performances; multiple instruments, costumes, objects, texts and spaces for reflection will be available.

A newly formed art installation band HugRouxLaw collectively present the aesthetic punk of the Anthropocene and invite our audience to take a swampy and sultry dip into the impressionistic intensity/ecstasy found in minute observation of the natural world.

With mouths full of blood, honey, bees: we blow kisses and bang bang arms.
