Across four weeks Kettle’s Yard presented a programme of quick-fire exhibitions, each lasting for only one week.
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 a mass knitting event in the Sackler Gallery, accompanied by live death metal band Anoxide at the opening event on Monday, 17 September.
Part of Ashery’s award winning video series Revisiting Genesis was also screened within the exhibition. Revisiting Genesis was screened in full during a special event on Wednesday, 19 September, when the artist was in conversation with curators Guy Haywood (Kettle’s Yard) and Yves Blais (fig-futures).
fig-futures was a project supported by Arts Council England, Art Fund, and Outset and followed the major project fig-2 in which 50 projects were presented across 50 weeks at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London in 2015. fig-futures took the one-week exhibition structure along with fig-2 alumni artists to four venues across the UK including Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool; Kettle’s Yard; The Gallery at De Montfort University, Leicester; and Plymouth Arts Centre.
