Across four weeks Kettle’s Yard presented a programme of quick-fire exhibitions, each lasting for only one week.
fig-futures at Kettle’s Yard began with a presentation of A Setup, a collaboration between renowned sculptor Eva Rothschild and choreographer Joe Moran. Rothschild’s architectural structures occupied the Sackler Gallery along with two dancers who performed live in the spaces each day during the exhibition.
For week two, artist Oreet Ashery’s sonic performance Passing Through Metal was staged for the first time in the UK, involving participants from Cambridge creating sound through mass knitting, accompanied by a heavy metal band. Ashery’s award winning video series Revisiting Genesis was also screened.
New work by artists Broomberg & Chanarin was displayed in week three, and new performances and installations by Patrick Coyle and Francesco Pedraglio took place in week four.
Each of the four projects started with free public events on Monday and Tuesday evenings, offering an exciting, exclusive opportunity to explore the spaces when they would usually be closed.
This project was in partnership with Norwich Castle Museum.
