Hattie Godfrey’s work questions how, both individually and collectively, we conceptualize and engage with illness. She is particularly interested in the role of institutions in causing, caring for and curing physical and psychological conditions.
‘Both the body and the institution are at their most unruly and unstable after sundown. The cover of night creates a hunting ground filled with stale, heavy-hanging time.’
Each act of her most recent work, Put Into Flight begins at sundown and eases at sunrise. The work casts illness as a form of supervisory staff, a single authority that oversees work, play and sleep.
Consisting of three acts over three consecutive nights, this 36-hour performance offers a window into the artist’s fluctuating relationship with illness. We see as she denies its existence, surrenders to its power and attempts to escape its confinement. Chase, Capture, Escape.
This is a free un-ticketed event, walk ins welcome.
