Ben Cain has worked with dancer, artist and choreographer Emma Hoette to bring about a performative intervention in the space of his exhibition Passive Imperative Participation Vibe. For this event Hoette will perform her own choreographed piece in the gallery responding to Cain’s installation and using individual artworks as props and supports for her body. Hoette’s activation of the artwork plays with Cain’s intention for these objects to be understood as event based and durational.
Places are free. Limited capacity.
