roves and roams and OpenHand OpenSpace invite you to

The Human Condition: Jessica F Hirst

on Tuesday 20th March at 19:00

Free Entry & Free Parking

You are invited to an evening with live artist Jessica F Hirst (Barcelona / USA), co-produced by roves and roams and OpenHand OpenSpace where she will perform Vocabulary and partake in an open Q&A with the audience.
Hirst, who has performed intentionally for the last decade, is interested in the intersections of personal and global struggles, in the spaces individuals create to consider our fragile human condition. How does a personal condition or experience, such as mental illness, interact with the stigmatizing commercial and social environment? How does the impetus to consume always more quantities of natural and manufactured resources square with the onslaught of information about climate change and other limits to nature?

Here is the egg in situ in St Martins courtyard, just off Mercer St nr Covent Garden in London.
If you can hunt down all 209 eggs then you could stand to win a £100,000 Jubilee Faberge egg.
Just think what you could do with that! Among the contributing artists you will find, the Chapman Bros, Andrew Logan, Zaha Hadid, Zandra Rhodes, Sir Peter Blake, Sir Ridley Scott to name but a few. Happy hunting

Another excellent artspeak talk by Jon Lockhart happened last week and went on til very late with an interesting discussion that kept us buzzing for days after. It was interesting to see the volume and breadth of Jons work and to see a common thread running through his projects.
Many thanks to Jon for his contribution and we look forward to the next talk by Ingrid Jensen next month.
