The PS/Y Hysteria programme and Camden Arts Centre presents a new performance by Ulapaarc the collaborative work of Paul Abbott and Cara Tolmie. The artists will use sound and voice as a way to look into the politics of language, repetition and appropriation.


Paul Abbott is an artist and musician based in London, working through questions and feelings connecting music and language: using real and imaginary drums, synthetic sounds, performance and writing. He has performed at numerous venues and galleries, including London’s Raven Row, Café OTO, ICA and South London Gallery; the Arnolfini, Bristol; De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill; and CCA, Glasgow.

Cara Tolmie’s recent solo projects include Pley, commissioned and produced by Picture This and exhibited at Spike Island, Bristol and at Artissima, Turin; and Otiumfold  commissioned by Chisenhale Gallery, London. She participated in the LUX AAP 2009/10 and has been selected for the Mejan Residents Programme in Stockholm 2015/16. She has created solo projects for Whitstable Biennale, Frieze Projects, Frieze Art Fair, London and Dundee Contemporary Arts. Her work has been featured in numerous group events at Tate Modern, London; the LUX Biennial, ICA, London; and at Art Basel, Miami.

The screening of 'Star Messenger' at LUX is part of PS/Y’s Hysteria – a combined arts programme that explores health and illness in contemporary society, focusing on issues of gender, race and cultural identity. Hysteria is curated by Mette Kjærgaard Præst and takes place in partnership with organisations and institutions across London from August 2017 until April 2018.
