Benedict Drew, July 1st, 9pm (Whitechapel Gallery)
The Trickle-Down Syndrome (2017)

Benedict Drew turns his major multi-media installation at Whitechapel Gallery into a musical score, collaborating with a group of leading experimental musicians on a live, durational improvisation.

Taking their cues from the visuals on the screens, the musicians build from the droning sounds of minimalist and US West Coast synthesizer music, to electro-acoustic free-improvisation. By producing sounds of increasing intensity, the performers transport the viewer to a reflective
or ecstatic space.

The Misshapeness of Things to Come (2017)

For Art Night Jake and Dinos Chapman present a brand new piece, The Misshapeness of Things to Come, in a listed warehouse at London Dock. Employing free associative writing techniques, the Chapman Brothers have been building poems through a cumulation of inserted ideas, in response to the lines of one another.

This new commission centres on a previously unpublished epic poem which manifests as a film, juxtaposing the spoken verse with flashing imagery corresponding to the words. The effect is a fast-paced visual representation of the poem, intended to overwhelm. Jake Chapman and his band Funhole will perform a special live performance
on the night, with an audience of eyeless mannequins dressed in the clothes of the dead, eyeballs in their hands, ever present and watching.
