Drawing on her interest in the politics of space that has characterised Anne Tallentire’s practice for over three decades, Look Over will slowly evolve across four hours in the Theatre. Reflecting upon various conditions and restraints that impact daily life, an immersive engagement with dispersed and fragmented elements of the work as it takes place will be encouraged. Tallentire will be assisted by Clare Daly and George Bularca.
Following Tallentire’s performance, Joanna Walsh will read from her book Miss-Communication (JOAN 2022), in conversation with Caroline Campbell's Loiterbot. Miss-Communication is a book of two halves. On each recto page, an AI text generated from the prison letters of Irish rebel politician and British aristocrat, Constance Markievicz, and interviews with 20th century Dublin women collected by Máirín Johnston in her 1988 book Dublin Belles. On each verso page, a choose-your-own-critical-theory adventure investigating language, autonomy, creativity, and gender identity. Joanna Walsh has both programmed the AI and written the essay, but is she the author of either ‘work’?
This event is part of the Stanley Picker Public Lectures and Events organised by the Department of Fine Art at Kingston University.
