Monsters & Mischief:
An Exhibition of Folkloric Inspired Artwork
24 October 2014 - 26 October 2014In the run-up to their Halloween event at Nottingham Contemporary, Hallow Gore present an exhibition inspired by the “darkness and depths of British folklore” at artist-run project space Bohunk Institute.
Running from the eve of 23rd to 26th October, the Monsters & Mischief exhibition will include work by artists including Matt Bailey, Dave Bevan, Steven Bradley, Arianne Churchman, Stewart Easton, Blue Firth, fourbeatwalk, Hand Cuts Hand, Benjamin Lewis Hargarve, Tara Hill, Chie Hosaka, Herman Inclusus, Chloe Langlois & Arianne Churchman, Steve Larder, Nu-Urban Gardeners, Steven Plowright, Jerry Price and Spit & Sawdust.
Monsters & Mischief is curated by FourBeatWalk and Hand Cuts Hand.
At the private view, English folklore and folk drama expert Dr Peter Millington (7pm) will be giving a short talk entitled “Folklore Mischief”.
There will also be performances from Nottingham based artist, Arianne Churchman (7.45pm) and singer/songwriter Sharron Kraus (8.15pm).
Churchman will be performing 'Dick The Wild Horse'; a performance based around the folk custom of Souling.
Heralded as one of the strongest voices in contemporary folk music, Kraus recasts centuries of pastoral tradition into uniquely spectral tales of tales of twilit secrets, dark lusts and rootless souls. Her music draws on English folk traditions and is influenced by gothic literature, surrealism, myth and magick.
