Lupercalia Live schedule
Lupercalia Live @ Bosse&Baum
Friday 18th March, 19.00-22.00
An evening of readings, performance and a screening on the occasion of Miriam Austin’s solo
exhibition at the gallery.
Through its combination of installation and performance, the exhibition Lupercalia institutes a
narrative matrix, in which sculptural objects become sacred instruments, tools and vestments.
The resulting works push towards imaginative slippages in which objects and bodies melt,
generating hybrid forms that are simultaneously alarming and seductive.
Austin’s work for Lupercalia emerges in part from her participation in the artist collective UA,
which since its inception in 2013 has created contexts for producing and viewing artworks and
texts that disrupt the secular default. UA insists on taking religion, myth and mysticism seriously
as way of understanding and engaging with aesthetic production.
Please also join us for the Closing Ceremony with UA and Paul Gwillam’s performance on 23
March, from 7pm.
