Cahun is a hero of mine, and since there’s currently an exhibition of her work on at linden mill in hebden bridge as part of the hebden arts festival, I’ve written an informal invite calling for responses and ideas inspired by her (or their?) portraits and writings. This is more in the spirit of an informal gathering than a formal exhibition, and will be hosted by poet and writing workshop facilitator Clare Shaw. Interested parties are invited to bring their thoughts and works to the close of the show on july 14th 2-4pm at linden mill, hebden bridge or share using the hashtag #underthismask

Participants were given an index card of an object lost from the museum’s collection and asked to re-create it. Look out for THE ART OF MAGIC as it will tour various venues including THE HORSE HOSPITAL and MWM with performances from various folklore tapes allumni. Here are a few shots of the exhibition:

“…Amy Cutler to re-invent the heroes, villains, sounds and spaces of nature broadcasts. We’ll travel through submerged volcanoes, bio-luminescence, flocking birds and swarming insects, accompanied by new performances, from live drone laments to the conducting of “feral singing” by the audience.”
