Event description

Description

Lou Lou Sainsbury presents a new live performance and video work, 1667: Not Alive, Just Living. Focusing on contemporary ‘toxicity’, the work is inspired by the 17th century non-human to human blood transfusions of Jean Baptiste Denis, a French physician who made numerous attempts to transfer the spirit of the lamb (via blood) into sick human patients to heal them. Working from research into the folkloric vampire, histories of queer & ecological activism and intersecting forms of land & social toxicity, 1667: Not Alive, Just Living presents a spiralling fable for when ‘life’ is determined by religion & capital. As above, so below. The toxic voice of a mysterious substance seeps through the slippages, passing from carrier to carrier, species to species, with unstable and vampiric consequences.


Nottingham Contemporary’s public programme is jointly funded by Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.
