PERFORMANCE
Toby Christian: Trippy Scroller
Wednesday 13 June 2018, 7pm
@ PEER

A live performance and sound piece from artist Toby Christian, reimagining the scroll – at one a document, a record, a spool – through domestic archival appartatus and props. Taking Abigail Reynolds' current exhibition The Universal Now and further epsiodes as its starting point, Christian extends Reynolds' passion for, and exploration of, books as material with his own scrolling, archiving and mark-making. Christian uses laminating machines, overhead projectors and cut-out figures to animate drawn and string characters.
