The Show & Context

Ariel conceived by Alice Tatton-Brown is a response to our commission call to imagine a future.

“In everyone there sleeps a sense of life lived according to love” (P.Larkin)

Ariel is an intimate story told and retold in a library. It’s the story of Ariel and John, and of what they left behind. A re-working of a mystery and a love story.

Part audio walk, part installation, and part performance. Ariel is about what we create together, what remains of us, and of what our modern preoccupation with photography and documentation might reveal to us.

Ariel is Kaleider commission.
