SLAM Last Friday: Screening of Act Without Words, A Performance for Video by The Hut Project, 25 May, 6-8pm

About

The Hut Project, in association with tart, presents Act Without Words a new performance work for video. The work takes as its starting point the same video clip that triggered their single-screen video work The Look of Performance, currently exhibited as part of ASSEMBLY. For Act Without Words the artists have commissioned writer Tom McMullan to 'provide a psychology' for the subject of the video clip. This new text has been used as the script for a further performance by that same actress. This video will be shown on loop for the duration of the evening's event. The Hut Project is an artist collective interested in how objects might perform as containers of their own process. Their discursive practice constructs long sequences of translations between action, image, and object, resulting in artworks that act like stages for, or between, events. The artists represent their work online using documents and information whose origin or relation is uncertain, a humorous critique of both autonomy and appropriation. The ASSEMBLY exhibition will be open until 8pm as part of SLAM Fridays, the last Friday of every month. All events are free. No booking required.
