Alice Theobald and Beatriz Olabarrieta are holding a screening at Nottingham’s Primary artist-led space on August 6.
The screening by the London-based artists will consist of “mixing artist films, snippets of TV, interjections from YouTube, and conversations exploring domesticity, conventionalism, aspiration and the absurdity of performance of the everyday”. Theobald will explore different characters and voices using 3D video and incorporate footage of local toddlers and dogs. While Olabarrieta will test ideas around how video can take a role within live performance.
The screening is part of Primary’s Back-to-front-space programme, a series of short residencies that “encourage artists to experiment with different ways of working –either testing out a speculative idea, or developing new collaborations”. Participants are to produce and present work to an audience in any format.
Matt Copson, Melanie Jackson, and Andy Holden are also currently in-residence and have events forthcoming in late August.
See the Primary website for more details.**
