The event comes in response to the current exhibition by Philadelphia-based artist Sharon Hayes, In My Little Corner of the World, Anyone Would Love You, running to June 5.
Presented will be a series of tracks, texts and music that, according to the press release “play out the intimacies and withdrawals of living with each other and ourselves” and make way to explore formal registers of public speaking, including interior monologue, reading and recital.
Leung, who is an editor for Versuch Press and a member of temporary bookshop PUBLIKATIONEN + EDITIONEN, applies her practice to writing about shows that she feels strongly about, forming responses to older artworks, like Bruce Nauman’s ‘Violent Incident’, which was curated into a group show of the same name by Calley Spooner at Middelburg’s Vleeshal Zusterstraat, and enacting gestures of display and reveal. She generally works around the gap (or transformation) between intimacy and presentation.
Hayes too works with both the content and display of archives, and for In My Little Corner… re-stages some of the most affective forms of presentation she has encountered.
