Brigid Mc Leer 'One + One (The Reading)' a durational performance

About

Brigid Mc Leer's residency at The Rea Garden will culminate on Saturday 19th June at noon. ‘One + One (The Reading )' is inspired by numerous sources, one being Jean Luc Godard's film ‘Le Mepris' — a film about the making of a film of Homer's Odyssey. In the opening sequence of ‘Le Mepris' we see a woman reading, Mc Leers piece will reference this shot, however during the durational performance Brigid will be reading text from James Joyce's Ulysses. Ulysses based on the Odyssey, gives an account of a day in the life of Leopold Bloom in Dublin, June 16th 1904. Mc Leer states that Ulysses ‘is also being read to speak to the surrounding context of Digbeth's immigrant Irish community'. The reading which is open to the public will be filmed using the tracking system installed during the residency.
