JOHNATHAN COOK, EMILY MCFARLAND & KATRINA VALLE

IN THE JUNGLE OF CITIES

Date: 08 Apr 2016 – 25 Apr 2016
Type: Event

This exhibition is a presentation of new work by artists, Emily McFarland, Katrina Valle and Johnathan Cook. This show, located in a post-commercial space in the city centre, is an exploration of particular personal and emotional relationships to the socio-economic landscape of a city. The artists respond to themes presented in Bertolt Brecht’s play ‘In the Jungle of Cities’. In the play the central characters experience a state of alienation from society and themselves. They are all jockeying for a secure position, but there is no security. Businesses change hands, people lose jobs, change partners, starve, get money, leave home or come home. Nothing stays the same.

A screening of Chantal Akerman’s documentary film ‘News from Home’ will take place on Sat 23rd April 4- 5:30pm.
