Free, no booking required
As part of And We’ll Always Be A Disco In the Glow of Love Ain Bailey has invited three artists, Elaine Mitchener, Hannah Catherine Jones and Rebecca Bellantoni to perform live within the space across three weekends in May, responding directly to the context of the exhibition. Each performance will take place within the exhibition setting and will last for approximately 20-minutes.
Rebecca Bellantoni is an artist born and living in London, of Caribbean descent. She works with everyday occurrences and abstracts them; with a focus on the lives and experiences of Black British people, her research looks at the smaller communities that have developed within this larger diaspora. Observed through the lens of pre and post colonial culture, it’s metaphysics; comparative theology, religion, spirituality as well as their cultural crossovers and aesthetics; Bellantoni simultaneous works with colour, it’s codes and objects and their ascribed cultural meanings to further question and interpret. Bellantoni’s interdisciplinary practice encompasses video, performance, sound-text, photography, textiles, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, installation, writing and silversmithing.
