Last song for a waterbaby is a new exhibition by artist Katie Shannon opening at Collective on 22.03.19. as part of Satellites Programme.
In Last song for a waterbaby, Katie moves between sound, image, print, sculpture and video to explore the alliances and collective experiences that form on dancefloors; kinships that are disconnected from reproduction or normative family structures. Images of late-night rituals are sampled, remixed and layered onto stretched and hanging latex, which becomes a screen for a video collage documenting the semi-lucid bathing of two friends. Last song for a waterbaby is an articulation of both the joy and melancholy of an attempt to extend youth, an exploration of the 'stretched out adolescence’ described by queer theorist Jack Halberstam.
Join us for the free exhibition Preview on Friday 22 March 7–9pm. We'll have beer on tap from our supporters Topout Brewery and a good fire going. Collective catches the weather so please wrap up well.
