Ruth Barker & Kim Moore

Palaces, Ballrooms and Battling Betty McAllister: Hidden histories of art and culture in Glasgow’s East End

Date: 04 Apr 2014 – 21 Apr 2014
Type: Event

Ruth Barker and Kim Moore have made work in response to Glasgow Women’s Library’s East End Women’s Heritage Walk.

Barker uses live performance and spoken word poetry to re-tell ancient myths through the lens of her own unconscious associations. She has produced a new meditative sequence of short aural pieces evoking the stories of women including Saint Teneu, and the lost witch Maggie Wall.

We run. We walk. We run is a new sound piece created by Kim Moore using binaural recordings of real and unreal spaces inspired by histories and stories of women of Glasgow’s east end. Both artists’ sound pieces to be experienced in and around Bridgeton, the new neighbourhood of Glasgow Women’s Library.

This programme includes two guided walks, two performances and the launch of audio tours that can be downloaded throughout the Festival.

Supported by Glasgow International and the Goethe Institute.
