Rupert Residency – Theory of meadowness

September is drawing to a close, and with it, my residency at Rupert in Vilnius. It has been a very productive time, of sorting, resolving and making whole, bits of work that have been in progress for a year or so. During the open studios, around 15 people came to hear me read an half hour excerpt from ‘The Lady, The Scientist and Phlegm’. I made a ‘set’ and used three objects to stand in for the characters. It was a good chance to test out the text and the staging. I think now that the final form may be a voice over audio of the text for a sculptural environment and/or video of the objects in motion.

Rupert Residency September 2016

On the 29th of August I arrived in Lithuania and started a month long residency at Rupert. Rupert occupies a handsome wooden art centre and creative industries incubator on the outskirts of Vilnius. Here we are surrounded by a mixed forest of pine, oak and a mix other broad leaved trees including wild apple. The river Neris flows next to Rupert and there is a small river bathing beach nearby. There is also a large meadow the botanical content of which shifts substantially through wet and dry soil conditions. 

During the residency I will be collating fragments of , ‘The Lady, the Scientist and Phlegm’ into a more cohesive long form, researching Lithuanian pickle traditions and creating a set like installation which will be used as a stage for a reading performance of my text. A busy month.  I hope you will continue to check back regularly during Septemb

Tomorrow night I will be live streaming two short performances for Brud’s project ‘ Luser Story’ at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw.  The work is  called ‘purity of knives’.  I’m a little nervous because I will be using the Periscope app to live stream. My user name is @bridget_currie if you fancy tuning into periscope, otherwise the video will be up on vimeo in the coming week.
