Event description

Description

‘The Hysterical Oracle’ is a female figure recurrent in different forms throughout history; chosen at birth she is placed in a temple as a conduit to receive visions informing the running of a future society. The temple is situated on a bed of natural gas which enters her bloodstream as she sits and describes visions in a poetic trance, from knowledge offered by the Oracle and doused with hysteria.

Stephanie Ballantine is a Leeds educated artist now based in Berlin. Having worked as part of the Peripheral collective, a pre-cursor to BasementArtsProject, circa 2008, we welcome her back with an installation featuring a series of photographic works and video piece. On the opening night there will also be a collaborative performance piece with Roma artist Delaine Le Bas.

For each exhibition at BasementArtsProject we stage at least one Lunctime Conversation event attended by the artist at which hot food is supplied. These events are opportunities for people to ask the artist questions about the exhibition and practice.
