HOUSEFIRE (2018/19/20)

  • Liv Wynter

HOUSEFIRE (2018) 'More than an Avalanche' - Wysing Arts Centre - 11 February to 8 April A new installation and performance by Liv Wynter, Housefire (2018), considers the absurdity and fatigue of constantly having to speak out. Referring to Aesop's fable of the "Boy Who Cried Wolf" as much as Marx's famous quote about history repeating itself "first as tragedy, then as farce", Wynter's monologue takes the position of a woman whose house burns down repeatedly. This work was also exhibited at WORM Rotterdam, Wysing Arts Centre and Centre Régional d'Art Contemporain Occitanie.
