Saturday, December 16, 2pm at Also As Well Too, 460 Portage Avenue, 2nd floor (Straight ahead off the elevator)
Please join us for some air and a cup of tea and the latest instalment of Also As Well Too’s serial project Book Retort. This rotating guest-lecture/performance emphasizes an engagement with the artist book and our Library.
Working from 20 written dances found in the book “8 DAYS III / BANANAPANDA”, sophia bartholomew will deliver a performative response to spills, leakages, boundaries and contaminations — moving between Elizabeth MacKenzie and Jeanne Randolph’s book “The Underside of Shadows”, Amanda Earl’s poem “WELCOME TO EARTH”, Femmes Unite! a zine produced by F.A.G PDX, and “WHINY FEMMES” a zine launched in Winnipeg this past October, edited by Christina Hajjar & Jules Hardy.
sophia bartholomew is an interdisciplinary artist whose current projects are grounded in collaborative work with rudi aker, Emma Hicks, and with their maternal grandmother, Klara. This month they are completing a residency at Platform centre for photographic + digital arts, supported by the New Brunswick Arts Board and Manitoba Arts Council’s creative residency exchange.
