Event

BIRTHE JORGENSEN & TAWONA SITHOLE

Bitter-rose

Date: 08 Apr 2016 – 24 Apr 2016
Type: Event
Location: Various

Sithole is a Zimbabwean writer, poet, musician and performer. Jorgensen is a Danish installation artist and collaborator. Both are currently artists in residence with Glasgow Refugee, Asylum and Migration Network.

This is a nomadic installation that moves through the streets of Glasgow by foot. Visiting local organisations that each in their way address what it means to be rooted or rootless, the show functions as an impromptu platform for discussion, guest performances and ad hoc workshops about geographical displacement.

Alluding to the aesthetics of forced and voluntary journey, languages of poetry conflate with the terminology of travel and music of being adrift with that of being on hold.

See below for further details on each event.

Bitter-Rose is presented by Invisible Knowledges – Glasgow Refugee Asylum and Migration Network and Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow.

Supported by Glasgow University Principal’s special funds allocated via GRAMNet, and Platform.
