21st Century Carpet Sale: A Legendary Collection

watersidecontemporary and Swedenborg Society present 21st Century Carpet Sale! A Legendary Collection, a performance event conceived by Oreet Ashery.

Ashery’s expansive body of work often confronts ideological, social and historical constructions within the fabric of personal and broader contemporary realities. This new work weaves together ideas the artist has been exploring since the beginning of the century.

Part catwalk, part punk-rock concert, part emancipated choreography, the event moves between threads of poetic resistance, musical declarations, and a foil of chaotic revelry. Historical moments summoned from humble materials of the Great Hall will be regenerated, as the evening culminates with an auction of the Swedenborg Carpet.

Guests will have a chance to bid on and own a piece of this legendary collection, in exchange for incremental measures of freedom.

Tickets are available from Eventbrite.

The performance accompanies Ashery’s solo exhibition Animal with a Language at waterside contemporary, which continues until 22 November.
