Performances start at 8pm

Glass Weather by Rafał Zajko
Above a village of concrete, the solar bulb is slowly fading. Window panes flicker with the light of TVs, Rafał Zajko performs Glass Weather, taps, pressure on the glass, the audience pressed against the screen. Feeling pressure. Pressurised. Pleasurised.

Rafał Zajko, lives and works in London. Recent works include the performance Silent Citadel (2014) with Jonathan Baldock at Matt’s Gallery, and Sunscreen (2015), a commision by EM15 for 56th Venice Biennale. He is organiser of MONO - artists’ moving image screening - and was recently selected for Syllabus by Wysing Arts Centre, Eastside Projects, New Contemporaries, S1 Artspace, Spike Island and Studio Voltaire.

'flu by Jude Crilly
‘flu is a three-tiered sound installation: in a deranged future, with natural resources exhausted and our contemporary world existing simply as fossils, a tortoise races through a virtual cityscape by night, trying to keep up with his nemesis, the naked hare.

Jude Crilly lives and works in London and Amsterdam. She works with installation, sound and performance. Jude collaborates with Laura O’Neill on Treatment of Dead Enemies and runs the curatorial project Half a Dozen Projects.
