Closet Dramas: E.M. Parry - An enigmatic cast of queer & unruly characters haunt, provoke & flirt with the viewer. Drawing on the historical genre of the closet drama, these works use a bricolage of practices to offer quasi-dramatic experiences in a playfully haunting hybrid of performance, document & score.
Fag Ends//Fag Breaks: E.M. Parry - durational installation & performance
Kinetic sculpture / queerly embodied archive, Fag Ends//Fag Breaks uses centuries-old tobacco-pipe stems mudlarked along the Thames banks, traces of human physicality & interaction to mark out a map across time, traced in the surrogate bones of the nameless dead.
The work can be experienced as a durational installation open daily 10-5.30 (drop-in), or a one-off performance, Fri 25/06, 7.30pm (booking advised). Performance accompanied by A Lucky Resurrection -live, improvised writing event by SL Grange.
E.M. Parry is a trans-disciplinary artist working with, through & for the queer body, squinting at history, flirting with ghosts & the things that go bump in the margins.
SL Grange is a multi-disciplinary artist & writer working in live performance contexts with an eclectic background in poetry, theatre & art
