Sue Tompkins: St St Steadicam high (UK)

An exciting opportunity to hear a brand new text work by British artist Sue Tompkins performed within the white cube of her Lydgalleriet exhibition. Described as “strung- out exercises in associative free thought: performance poetry that moves from the page to the voice, from speech to song, from song to signal, from signal to pure sound.” Sue Tompkins draws on her experiences as lead singer with now disbanded post-punk group Life Without Buildings to place her texts in a visceral yet intimate context, where the energy of the live band still fizzles behind her. Written, yet improvised, her performances bring her texts off the page with a unique combination of inflected speech and interrupted movement.
