The Experimental Library: Octavia E. Butler.

No Longer Available

The Experimental Library is a series of Rooms.

Each Room in The Experimental Library houses ‘events’ in response to the work of a specific radical creator.

The series will create a space for reading, objects, dance, music making, and dialogue, and will coincide with a publication of further responses to the artist.

The second room is Octavia E. Butler.

The concert is a series of responses to Octavia E. Butler:

On Yee Lo

Lotus Edde-Khouri

Ute Kanngiesser

The publication will include contributions by:

Alice Channer

Danny Hayward

Finlay Clark

Keira Greene

Noor Al-Samarrai

On Yee Lo

On Yee Lo (b. Hong Kong) lives and works in London. She designs and constructs ‘Cooking Instruments’- physical systems where common meals are prepared and consumed, creating situations across different social patterns. Gestures, labour and hospitality are the key ingredients in her recipes. She has exhibited and performed her work at Ikon Gallery, ICA, Camden Art Centre, Zabludowicz Collection, Bloomberg New Contemporaries, Beck's Futures and ARTISSIMA Turin. 

Lotus Edde-Khouri

Is a Paris-based dancer and choreographer. Her work researches the different ways that time and space can inform each other, through the practice of dance and choreography, bending from alloy to discord, dialectic to pure process, autonomy to synergy. This research applies in particular to the relation between sound and movement, with slowness in particular - as a means of stretching time through its multiple possibilities - serving as an important tool.

Ute Kanngiesser

Ute Kanngiesser has played cello since early childhood, and for more than a decade, has only played unscripted, improvised music - solo and in collaboration with other musicians and composers in London and internationally. An important part of her work has developed in relationship to other art forms such as writing, dance, film, and site specific performance. More recently, she has begun to experiment with open form compositions, writing semi-graphic scores as a way of recording music, that can be retrieved later on and in new ways.

Recent collaborations have been with Evie Ward, Daniel Blumberg, Billy Steiger, Tom Wheatley, Crystabel Riley, Seymour Wright, Paul Abbott, Keira Greene, John Butcher, Eddie Prévost and Jennifer Allum.
