Join us as we celebrate the opening of Brewers Towner International 2022 and Ayo Akingbade: Duette with a special evening programme of performances, film screenings, drinks and music until late.
Performance by Ramona Ponzini, Studio 1
Ramona Ponzini is an avant-garde artist who plays in the intersection between music, poetry, audio collage and visual art installation. Ponzini's performance, A piano from shoulder to wrist #5.47 will mix together natural and manipulated sounds inspired by the necessity of finding a place within our bodies to rest and refocus.
Performative appearance by Lucy, roving
Lucy’s work spans across a wide range of media and genres, including music, performance, comics and short stories. The common factor in much of her work is a love of animals and particularly her admiration of dogs. For this event, Lucy will appear as two of her original animal character creations throughout the galleries, both of whom can communicate to the audience through their companion Tom: Speedy is a greyhound and a retired Hero Dog who during retirement has been listening to lots of music and going to gigs, and Cosmic Collie who’s naughty, mischievous and a bit of a diva, loves performing and plays the drums in the band Delta 7.
Film screenings of Felix Melia’s Money for Nothing (2021) and Patrick Hough’s The Two Faces of Tomorrow (2021), Towner Cinema
Combining moving image, writing, installation and performance Felix Melia’s work addresses notions of public and private space, intimacy and agency. It is an exploration of the ways we perceive, move through and dwell in our environments.
Patrick Hough is an Irish artist living and working in London. Incorporating moving image, photography, and installation, Hough’s work excavates the increasingly entangled nature of archaeological, geological, and ecological worlds.
