Alien Sex Club Event: Susannah Hewlett
Saturday, 21 November 2015, 16.00 – 16.20
Free, booking required
A collaborative presentation using good old words and pictures by performance artist Susannah Hewlett and clinical epidemiologist Professor Sheena McCormack . Expect facts, jokes and messages from the other side…..
Susannah Hewlett works in live art, comedy, theatre, sound and video.
She has performed and screened work for Barbican, Tate, Live Art UK, Loco Comedy Film Festival and at various events in New York. She is a Duckie associate artist.
She is interested in the scarier side of popular culture and explores this in videos & site specific shows including the cult comedy horror in a caravan ‘Barbara and Yogashwara’s Safe Space’. As if having one wasn’t bad enough – her alter ego is Chris Titmas an ego-meniacal shopping channel host, through whose eyes she gets to see some horrible stuff.
This event will take place at John Walter’s Alien Sex Club exhibition at Camp and Furnace and is being live streamed to Bluecoat.
Part of Homotopia 2015
