scripturacontinua 9-14 March 2010 Performance: Tuesday 9th March 2010, 6-9pm Helen Schoene's frustration comes with separation from her mother tongue. Her diligent reading calls for ever-increasing scruting as she grasps for meaning, trying to unpick each word. At her wit's end, she turns back on herself, clutching at straws, searching through split ends. Scanning, printing, reprinting, repeating, Schoene transforms the gallery into a site of production, as tresses, clumps and strands creep across the walls. Finding herself at the centre of an irrational web, the snake hair of Medusa emerging from her head, Schoene invites you to unpick the tangled mass with limited edition leoporello books and jigsaw puzzles. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- KALEID is proud to announce scripturacontinua, a season of performance curated by Katharine Fry taking place throughout March 2010. Sheila Ghelani, 2nd-7th March 2010 Helen Schoene, 9th-14th March 2010 Francis Elliott, 16th-21st March 2010 Jordan McKenzie, 23rd-27th March 2010 Scriptura Continua refers to the writing of late antiquity in which no inter-word spacing or punctuation was used, with no distinction made between cases. As such, the task of interpreting the text fell to the reader, forced to divide the written string of letters into words. Meaning was only recovered through oralisation as the texts were recited over and over again. scripturacontinua considers parallels with performance art in terms of ritual, repetition and shared experience. Each week a different artist responds to the theme with a live performance and the creation of limited edition residua, inviting the audience to share a realm of private acts and sacred texts.
