David Walker Kennedy: I’VE GOT THE POX

Saturday 7 March, 7pm

Join us on 7 March 2020, 7PM at Maison Touchard for a new durational sound-work by David Walker Kennedy, collated from false memories, stolen ideas and forgotten conversations.

‘I’VE GOT THE POX’ is driven by confusion, fear and desire, and the power of time to reframe everything. The longer the better; because being forgetful is powerful. Drawing from Kennedy’s research gathered over a month at the 57th Venice Biennale, the work is part of a larger exploration into the potential of sound to oppose the increasing speed of the artistic experience.

Event is free but please RSVP due to limited capacity.

Book a ticket here!
