Performance and Q & A with Danish-Trinidadian artist Jeannette Ehlers at Royal College of Art, Battersea.

With the performance Whip it Good, Jeannette Ehlers re-enacts one of the most brutal punishment methods used during slavery.  In using the same method, the whipping, on a white canvas, Ehlers acts out a simple but tense rebellion against the past. Whip it Good was first commissioned by Art Labour Archives and Ballhaus Naunynstrasse in 2013. 

The audience will be invited to participate in this performance.
 
A drinks reception will follow the performance as well as a Q & A session with Jeannette Ehlers and Karen Alexander (TBC).
