LADA is curating Blood Counts, a programme of events exploring blood in performance for BLOOD: Life Uncut, a season of work for the new Science Gallery, London.
Looking at blood as a signifier of identity and being, as a marker of fragility and illness, as a form of protest and resistance, as a manifestation of bodily functions, and as a test of the limits of the body, Blood Counts includes an evening of presentations, provocations and discussions around the aesthetics, ethics, biomedical and cultural contexts of blood and performance at Guy's Chapel, Kings College, and a screening of short films and documentation of key performance works involving blood at the Copeland Gallery in Peckham.
Friday 13 October at 7pm
The evening includes a keynote presentation on blood in art by Dr Dominic Johnson, a performance of Passion/Flower by Ernst Fischer & Nicola Hunter, and contributions from the artists Marisa Carnesky and jamie lewis hadley.
Saturday 14 October at 7pm
The screening programme includes short films and documentation of performance works by Franko B, Marisa Carnesky, Ron Athey, Kira O'Reilly, Regina Jose Galindo, La Ribot, Martin O'Brien, jamie lewis hadley, Ernst Fischer & Nicola Hunter, and Rocio Boliver.
Full details of the screening programme are available here.
