Beatriz Olabarrieta @ NGCA, Jun 4 – Jul 11

4 June 2015

Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art in Sunderland, England is celebrating Spanish artist Beatriz Olabarrieta with a solo exhibition of her work, titled Plot Bunny and running from June 4 to July 11.

Plot Bunny will be Olabarrieta’s first institutional solo show in the UK, for which the Bilbao-born and London-based artist will present a series of site-specific sculptures that will function as catalysts for a series of texts commissioned throughout the duration of the exhibition.

Exploring the parameters of language and how it exists “both inside and around objects”, the sculptures will operate as furniture or as platforms upon which the writers are tasked as performers, shifting the material aspects of the gallery’s architecture. The preview on June 4 brings a live performance of a collaborative sound work with Rhodri Davies and Shelly Knotts.

The night will feature screenings of Mainland Rock from artist Benedict Drew and Augur from Nicholas Brooks, spoken words by Heather Phillipson, and the second iteration of Drew’s Dyslexic Shanty performance with video accompaniment by Rhodri Davies, on amplified harp.
