MONOMATIC presents Luke McCreadie
A Lie for a Sculpture (Part III)
Hosted by Rhubaba
7pm, Saturday 9 December 2017
Luke McCreadie has been commissioned by MONOMATIC to produce a new version of his on-going performance work A Lie for a Sculpture. The new work presents ceramic objects, which the artist produced with a school group, alongside a text devised from these objects. The work positions objects alongside text which reflects on the transient nature of understanding, whilst also intensifying the space and time between objects. Words and mouth-space are considered in the same light as objects and real space, where the hand and the tongue are implicit as modes of production.
McCreadie takes a museological approach to the forming and choreography of the work, presenting objects which circulate, join and disconnect from the spoken word.
MONOMATIC is a sometimes project space. This edition is hosted by Rhubaba.
