Philip Ewe: Capital ‘I’/ don’t shoot the messenger
28 September – 1 October 2017, Art Licks weekend 2017
Exhibition opening – Thursday 28 September, 6.00-9.00pm/ Performance at 7.30pm
Exhibition continues Friday 29 September to Sunday 1 October, 12.00-6.00pm
Anchored in the dynamics of performance, Capital I presents a selection of new work by Philip Ewe staged in and around the Bede House Estate. Alongside the exhibition, Ewe presents don’t shoot the messenger, a new performance traversing Bede House Estate commandeering balcony, car park and flat to theatrical effect.
Ewe (b.1983, lives and works in London) is a multi-disciplinary artist working with performance, video and sculpture. Ewe is primarily concerned with social behaviour, public space and the channelling of subjectivity through processes that favour the experiential and unpredictable. Interests in property development, audience relationships and the politics of space find varied forms across live performances, collage and high tempo videos.
The programme is a montage of mixed messages and hijacked narratives that explores the nature of rhetoric as a changeable, unreliable and malleable material and working with performance in dynamic, and at times absurd degrees.
