If you have been unable to get to the show I have curated PLACE you still have a chance to get to it - this Friday, Saturday and Sunday are the final days of the exhibition. There are concerts this saturday and sunday as well. If you missed the first concert we are repeating it on Saturday the 17th, in it the hugely talented Timorese artist exhibiting Alfeo Sanches Pereira talks about his work with musical responses performed by Otopsy Klamar singing his powerful and poignant original songs. Along side them Julia Ryder on cello and me on clarinets weave through the space playing works that reflect the wonderful works of art exhibited in this show, taking the audience on a journey that cojoins the art and music. Sunday is full of surprises with the Splinter Orchestra and violinist, composer Hollis Taylor and performer, composer Margery Smith combining forces for an afternoon of improvisation, collaboration and reflections - do consider joining us and share the experience and a complimentary glass or two of wine or something softer.
There are two sound installations in the exhibition worth spending a bit of time with, even if you can’t make the concerts, the space is open from 11am to 5pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week.
Some of the wonderful artwork of Alfeo and delicately painted mangrove roots of Meta Dos Santos Barreto are still available for purchase, and well worth seeing.
Hope to see you sometime over the weekend - Ros
