Event description

Description

Unofficial Westfield shopping centre artist, Louise Ashcroft guides you on an interactive tour of Stratford City's mega mall, which has been her second home for the last six months during an off site residency organised by Arebyte. To coincide with her residency exhibition at Arebyte's main space (nearby in Hackney Wick), this performance tour brings together observations, ideas and experiments triggered by Louise's fieldwork at the epicentre of consumer capitalism. Playful, humorous, and antagonistic, the tour will equip you to use the shops and their surroundings as a material for creative, critical practice. Marx meets the Marx brothers?

Louise Ashcroft makes performances, writing, videos and sculpture which use humour to create situations reflecting on contemporary culture, chronicling her sharp but shambolic meddling with forces of power and control as she tries and fails to overthrow advanced capitalism.
