KFI MAY GATHERING // 23rd - 28th MAY

Project gathering and launch of book series,........

The KFI Gathering coincides with the launch of our KFI book series, the opening of the project exhibition (The Unfinishing of Things) that will be running over the summer at the University, and a visit from Erin Manning and Brian Massumi. We thought this would be the perfect opportunity to bring together not just the core members of the project but all those with whom we have had a sustained and productive dialogue over the course of the last few years. The week will not follow the usual conference or symposium format, but will rather foster an informal space to do things together, exchange ideas and discuss future collaborations. The events and workshops will take place at University of Aberdeen campus and the Anatomy Rooms Arts Centre in the city centre.

Liquid Rock: If Concretes Could Speak

A Participatory Performance 

Concrete’s story is deeply entangled with humankind’s own environmental and cultural history. From its volcanic origins to its pivotal role in engineering developments, concrete has allowed us to build, to dig, to dream… However, Concrete is not impervious to decay or ruin, and the impact of its use is immense: each tonne of concrete produced releases a tonne of CO2, and over two billion tonnes are produced per year. So, its story is far from inished. What do you think Concrete would say, if it could speak? Come along and participate by making concrete test cubes and performing a multi-voice script in which Concretes speak!

As part of the exhibition The Unfinishing of Things, members of the public are invited to take part in a choral speaking and concrete pouring performance called ‘Concrete Speaks’, written by by Rachel Harkness, Cris Simonetti, Judith Winter. The output of the performance will then be exhibited at Sir Duncan Rice Library, University of Aberdeen’s main library. 

Location: Courtyard of the Anatomy Rooms (Queen St, Aberdeen, AB10 1AP, Scotland)

Time: 3pm, Thursday 25th May 2017
