Rita Says: New Work’&’Edge of the Land TITLE Preview

Art & Culture

To celebrate the final week of Rita Says exhibition at Hundred Years Gallery consisting of sculpture, film and series of performances, there are a number of events taking place.

The show is made up of new work from sculptor and performance artist Rita Says referencing gender, film, and the history of Body Art. The show features three site specific pieces, each an attempt to reintegrate drawing into performance practice.

Roshi featuring Pars Radio wil be taking place on Wednesday the 24th July and is the music project created around the beautiful individual interpretations of Iranian folk and original songs of Roshi Nasehi. The project features the electronic soundscapes/beats of Graham Dids (Gagarin, Nico, Pere Ubu). Its an unusual sound world combining Roshis intimate singing style with Grahams experimental electronic powers to create a unique genre-crossing, exotic, folktronica landscape. 

On Saturday the 27th The Next Room will be taking place at 7.30 and is a multi-modal performance group whose native habitat is the world of site-specific Hit-and-Run Installations. In a Next Room performance, images, sounds and movement sequences triggered by our mix of Musicians/Music Therapists; Experimental Theatre performance artists; Movement artists; Live artist; Image and Sound Mixing artists and Narrator provide feedback-loops that are woven into obscurely apt narratives, somewhat similar to those that occur in dreams. Each piece is part of a responsive process that strives towards a new performance ritual that is both collaborative and virtuosic.

And finally on Sunday the 28th of July, before they close for the August holidays, Hundred Years Gallery will be having a little Summer party and cooking up some black paella & snacks for you.
