IF ANYONE SHOWS US THE CEILING, WE SHOW THEM SKY
Andy Holden, Steve Roggenbuck & The Grubby Mitts
Various readings, films and music emerging from their experiments at Primary that form the basis of Andy Holden and Steve Roggenbuck’s forthcoming exhibition at Rowing and a new performance for the Whitechapel Gallery.
For Andy Holden’s residency at Primary he has invited along his musical collaborators The Grubby Mitts to record a spoken word jazz performance based on 300 ceramic cats recently inherited from his late Grandma. Attempting something between a comedy show, a stage play, a concept album and a youtube unboxing video, the group will devise, rehearse and record this new work at Primary. Joining them will be poet/blogger from USA, Steve Roggenbuck. Steve came to to international attention through his video poems, blogging and published poetry that blend irony and sincerity with an innate understanding of internet aesthetic. The results of the experiments at Primary will form the basis of Holden and Roggenbuck’s collaborative exhibition at Rowing opening in September as well as a short UK tour finishing with a performance at the Whitechapel Gallery on the 3 September.
Followed by a DJ set by Matt Copson & Felicita
This event is part of Back-to-front-space.
