I have been collaborating with my dear friend and artist Beth Greenhalgh and we have two performances coming up in Cardiff this autumn.
First up our show Sex Change Disco will be at Made in Roath...
Sex Change Disco: Beth Greenhalgh and Susie Wild
Visual Art / Performance / Spoken Word / Disco
Friday 14th October, 7.30pm
Free entry, all welcome
An image is burnt to the retina. A flash of something that lingers in my memory. It is playful, holds beauty, holds power. I will not forget it.
Chocolate guns melt into fondue and singing, speaking mouths burst with glitter, fruit, and jelly. Things are revealed upon our bodies, words spoken to stillness and everyone will dance.
Sex Change Disco is a surreal and uncanny multi-media statement on safe space, equality and allowing openness to the individual.
Beth Greenhalgh studied Time-Based Practice at Cardiff School of Art and Design. Recent works include ‘Little Tokyo’ The Tate London.
Susie Wild is a writer and performer based in Cardiff. The author of The Art of Contraception and Arrivals, her debut poetry collection is out through Parthian in 2017.
Next up, we'll be taking a smaller piece from this collaboration to the wonder that will be tactileBOSCH's Garden of Earthly Delights...
Garden Of Earthly Delights is a love letter to Hieronymus Bosch, on the 500th anniversary of this most enigmatic and influential artist. Inhabiting the dark, atmospheric spaces of a vast, disused historic building in Cardiff Bay, tactileBOSCH present Garden Of Earthly Delights, a multi-media gesamtkunstwerk (exhibition) incorporating installation, video, sonic art, interdisciplinary collaborations and spontaneous interventions, kicked off with a wild night of live music and visceral performance art!
Garden Of Earthly Delights runs from 22nd October to 19th November, and is part of Cardiff Contemporary, a city-wide festival of contemporary art.
Grand Opening Night – 7pm – 11pm Saturday 22nd October. Everyone Welcome!
