at 4Cose, Vyner Street. September 2017
A tasting evening for the senses: exploring stories and histories of honey, exploring this sticky substance’s hidden values and wide geographies. Sweet, savoury and in between: all bites will contain this golden viscous element.
HONEY invites you to get stuck into its gloopy, uncontainable, sensual, radical, borderless, mythical sweeteness. How can these qualities be representative of contemporary limits, boundaries, margins? What is so attractive about slippery stickyness?
SPECIAL GUEST: Natasha Cox performs a new work ‘This is not the place’. Made while on a residency at the Merz Barn, the site of Kurt Schwitters’ last Merz. The actual work, a mixed media plaster relief, was removed in 1965 and relocated to the Hatton Gallery in Newcastle. A large canvas photographic image of the work rests in its place. Soundtrack accompaniment from Phil Swan.
