Event description

Description

Written in 2000, Caryl Churchill's play *Far Away* feels no less ingenious today, and maybe even more farsighted and unsettling in its treatment of fear, complicity, and corruption.

For this live reading, proposed by Shadi Habib Allah, the artist invites Churchill's play into the realm of his exhibition. This gesture quietly reorients his tactic of integrating himself into existing social structures; here things unfold in reverse, as a set of actors undertake their own activity within the space outlined by his work.

Read more about the exhibition.

This event follows a walk-through of Habib Allah's exhibition, also in the gallery, led by curator Solveig Øvstebø and beginning at 2pm.
