Evan Ifekoya | Whitstable Biennale 2016 | Performance Saturday 4 June 2016 8-9pm
Great to hear Evan Ifekoya, previous KWT artist-in-residence, is part of the Whitstable Biennale 2016, performing...
A Score, A Groove, A Phantom: The Extended Play
Saturday 4th June 20:00—21:00 The Sea Cadets Hall
Ifekoya’s performance will create a multi-sensory environment of pink fur, Juicy Fruit chewing gum, a locally sourced ’disco ball’ and highlights from the artist’s ‘family album’. The work presents Ifekoya’s research into the nightclub as archive, the mouth as site of experience and West African mourning traditions.
A Score, A Groove, A Phantom is a performance as expanded song, bringing together the public nature of death and the performance of self, as well as the awkwardness of having a ‘favourite part’ of Nanna Grace’s funeral DVD. It uses the body in life and death as a material to investigate the erotic potential of these experiences. Please leave your shoes at the door. Libations will be served. Dancing is encouraged.
