About Hosting Stillness

Listed Under Exhibitions Events

The idea behind this work is to explore the magical forms of the minor gesture in response to time, site, audience and its relationship to themes within care, ableism and posthumanism. The notion behind the minimal form aims to look at vulnerability as a radical act and performatively celebrate limitations within the body.

The exhibition at the Intermedia Gallery at the CCA will mark the beginning of the three-month-long The Performance Café artist network, which will see Jones create and lead a peer support group for both un-abled and abled artists.

Performances and exhibition

The performances will be durational and will last approximately 4 hours between the 11th of May and the 14th of May. These timings may change unexpectedly.

The exhibition surrounding the performance will act as evidence of the development of the project and will include a video of a discussion between artist and curator as well as a publication, which will note the score of the performance and creative writings by the artist.
