Join us for the launch of Mind Your Heads, a new performance and installation by artist Marcia Farquhar. Mind Your Heads will encompass 3 conjoined wheelie bins that will nomadically manoeuvre throughout the friary and on designated occasions be activated by the artist as she orchestrates a three-way conversation. As well as hosting the divided self these makeshift pulpits will provide spaces from which three ideologically opposed speakers will move further and closer to each other in space, time and paradoxical speech.Read More...
