The Rot of the Stars (ROTS) initiates communications with the isolated unicellular microbes that inhabit the plastisphere, an ecosystem inhabited by more than 1,000 species of bacteria and algae that have evolved to live on microplastic debris. ROTS, composed of visual and performance artist Jo Fisher Roberts and experimental musician and writer Mark O Pilkington, will construct a sympathetic environment charged with images, sounds, smells and light in order to open up a channel between our world and that of the microbial plastisphere. The mise-en-scène is amplified and the visual presentation complemented by daily live performances occurring at lunch time throughout the week. Please book your tickets for the daily live performances here.
Please join us for the weekly Curatorial Tour on Wednesday and the Last Chance Exhibition Tour on Sunday.
