SAT, 12 JAN, 5-7PM:

In the shadow, I see myself: an improvised performance of Laine Hogarty’s Defence Mechanisms – Projection.

The work explores the unnamed projection of fears experienced on the Island and the human drives that instinctually arise from our innate need for self-definition and defence.

Performed in the exhibition space with Jess Williams and alternating musical resonations and collaborations from guest musicians.

WED, 16 JAN, 5-6PM:

Jennifer McElwee’s Wall-to-Floorpaper performance-ritual.

This performance explores the fragility of culture using the impermanent markings of water, chalk, stencil and template. Wallpaper patterns from Ripponlea and Beauilieu of the late 1800’s share the time line of the defences offered by the South Channel Fort. Adaptions of these will slide from wall to floor.
