Event description

Description

Jakob Rowlinson invites members of the public to join him on a guided tour of East London to explore some of the lesser known sites around Whitechapel and Spitalfields in the WALKATIVE LECTURE.

Making use of handouts and educational-style leaflets, Rowlinson's walking performance lecture focuses on revealing lesser known histories, fictional local landmarks, and personal accounts from local residents, to create a speculative snapshot of the area. In this way, the artist is interested in questioning how we select events and landmarks for historical recognition, as well as exploring different modes of storytelling and alternative facts. Expect a theatrical and yet informative tour guide, who's inspiration derives from the famous 'Jack the Ripper' tours, and incorporates his own version of performative pedagolical lectures.

(The tour features the following Art Night commissions: Lawrence Lek at The White Chapel Building,Lindsay Seers at Masonic Temple, Andaz Hotel, Do Ho Suh in Commercial Street, Anne Hardy at Nicholls & Clarke Showrooms.)
