Sarah Pierce to lead public programme ‘Our Neighbourhood’
CCA are delighted to announce that Sarah Pierce is the lead artist on our Esmee Fairbairn funded public programme, Our Neighbourhood, in its second year.
The project this year hinges around Pierce’s ongoing interest in community, and will deal specifically with dementia, looking at the conditions of dementia as both intimate and communal. Through various forms including chanting, gesture and muscle memory, the project follows the protocols that people with dementia call upon: withdrawal, insistence, repetition, confabulation. In its initial phase, it has sought to compile a glossary of terms and set of ideas offered by writers, thinkers, and artists whose work addresses these protocols.
The first public event will take place on Friday the 21st of April at 4pm. Please see our website for further information.
