Wrestling and Striptease (filming 7/7)
From our friends in Islington Mill:
Alison Ward and Shane Heinemeier are in residency at the Mill until the end of July. Between drag, wrestling and striptease, Alison plays with our perceptions of sexuality and beauty as part of her acclaimed practice and performance, and, within the 3 remaining weeks, she and Shane will be using the gallery as a studio. Their residency culminates in an exhibition from Friday 22 July in conjunction with the Mill’s totally awesome Graduation Ceremony party. Alison is also looking for volunteers to feature in a film Alison is also looking for volunteers to feature in a film on Friday 8 at 6.30pm where a Tex-Mex feast will be supplied for participants. Think glitter, streaky, freaky makeup and post party meltdown. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get your face on film. Alison and Shane’s talk on July 7 will focus on the artist-led studio space they are part of in New York, called Flux Factory, as well as the exchange programme they are developing with the Mill.
