Paul Kindersley is one of 22 artists selected for inclusion in ‘The Cambridge Show’ and is performing in the gallery every Saturday during the exhibition.
Paul Kindersley and a troupe of performers will perform Ship of Fools, a play written by Kindersley and inspired by a painting by Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516). Bosch’s Ship of Fools depicts a boatload of merrymakers indulging in earthly pleasures while unwittingly sailing towards their doom. The performance will last 30 minutes and will take place amongst Kindersley’s installation of handpainted drapery in the gallery.
FREE, come along.
‘The Cambridge Show’ brings together work by twenty-two artists who live or work in and around Cambridge. Showcasing a cross-section of the artistic community operating in the local area, from photography to performance, the exhibition will explore these artists’ diverse practices, and some of the themes and issues that they are engaging with right now.
Born in 1985 in Cambridge, Paul Kindersley has exhibited and performed extensively at venues across the UK and Europe. He was recently commissioned by Charleston, home of the Bloomsbury Group, to produce a major film work inspired by Virginia Woolf’s Orlando. Other recent solo exhibitions include: ‘Ship of Fools’, SKIP Gallery, Selfridges, London (2019); ‘Fake Fairy Fantasies’, Belmacz, London (2018); ‘Narrator, Relator & Stimulator’, Belmacz, London (2017); ‘#TheBritishAreCumming’, Kunstschlager, Reykjavik (2014); and ‘#ExtremeDreamMakeover’, Nottingham Contemporary.
The galleries are fully accessible. There is a ramp from the entrance area to the ground floor galleries. There is an accessible toilet located on the ground floor, just in front of the lift.
