PREVIEW AND PERFORMANCE: Thursday 13 July, 6–10pm
14 July – 19 August, Friday-Saturday, 12noon–6pm or by appointment

For his first project in the UK, Swiss artist Guillaume Pilet will be in residence at Primary to develop DREAM A LITTLE DRAMA, an initial sketch for a new sculpture-opera-work. Stepping back towards the artist’s roots, the project seeks to redefine a formal and poetic context based on his own cultural background.

The installation will mix classical painting and vernacular folklore, family customs and popular dramaturgy, childhood memories and pre-globalized 90s culture. Within this theatrical set, a performer will act as the artist’s alter ego, using the language of popular culture to introduce elements of Pilet’s cultural autobiography.
