From Chibok to Calais
Eca Eps (UK)
Presented with Ort Gallery
Taking momentum from one of the key issues shaping public debate, artist Eca Eps explores the chaos presented by conflict and migration and civic nationalism. Utilising elements of speech, sound and play in a participatory performance, the artist draws on the materiality of water as a leveller that cuts across territorial boundaries, with emphasis on its dualistic capacity to constitute both a barrier and a lifeline, underscored by the spatial provenance of a derelict gala pool.
This event is presented as part of Eca Eps’s From Chibok To Calais exhibition at Ort Gallery, Balsall Heath (12–5pm Tuesday – Saturday, until 11 November).
