About

For our first fig-futures show in Leicester at De Montfort University’s The Gallery, Anna Barham will present ‘Yet as yet’, a text she has developed from Vilem Flusser’s ‘Vampyrotethis Infernalis’ (Vampire Squid) through live readings and computer transcriptions in repeated cycles of performance, documentation and recombination. Through this work, she continues her investigation into language, using both the body and technology as tools to reinterpret words, syntax and meaning by pushing them to their limits.

Following a live reading during the opening on 5 November 6-8pm, the material will exist in the form of a score, a projection and an audio work presented within a series of specially designed structures. Together these elements insert the viewer into the body of the text, to become participants in another layer of its production and the images it performs.

fig-futures is a programme of 16 week-long exhibitions across four venues around the UK in 2018 and 2019, and draws on the same curatorial framework as fig-2 at the ICA Studio, London in 2015. The Gallery at De Montfort University is the third institution to exhibit as part of programme across November 2018. For more information visit fig2.co.uk
