Description

Library Interventions: Moving Knowledge

19th April 2018 | Launch of gallery show

26th April 2018 | Symposium

This year’s Library Interventions transforms the Leeds Arts University's Blenheim Walk Gallery into a complex site that re-enacts a repository of knowledge: filled with books and objects, and acting as a site of poetry, performance and moving image.

For Michelle Williams Gamaker, the library is a docufictional platform, where a liminal encounter between the realm of fictional subjectivities and its more rational counterpart of facts can take place. As such, the library holds keys to our individual and collective desires to understand epistemological ‘truth’.

Williams Gamaker will – in collaboration with David Steans, and Clare Charnley & Geoff Clout – and with text-based contributions and readings by the poet Joey Chin – restage the Leeds Arts University library by drawing upon the immersive qualities of games and novels to plunge visitors into a physical renegotiation of the library and its contents, a space full of resonating narratives. What does the library represent to those who enter it?

Miriam Naeh will be joining the Intervention for a symposium screening of her work.

The full day of events, screenings and talks, begins at 10am.
