Presented by Word of Warning + The Lowry
A live scrap book. An unfinished love affair. A made up true story.
Lowri is in trouble. She leads a double life. By day she ponders the passing of time, sifting through the fractured memories of people left with snippets of who they were. By night she makes art in strange places: fleeting, filmic moments with unsuspecting mortals. All to draw meaning from our jumble-sale lives.
But the telescope has turned on this meddling voyeur. You are invited to witness her attempt to piece together a sparkling constellation from stuff, love and darkness; to understand what we are, how we fit together and what we leave behind.
This is Lowri’s first feature length solo show and will see her visual art and theatre practice blur together on the night of her thirtieth birthday.
####More Lowri’s website is beautiful – we couldn’t sum it up any better than her pictures do – so have a look here.
####Who is she? Lowri is a Manchester based live artist whose work draws upon a background in visual art, experience in performance and commitment to social engagement. Over the last few years she has worked with National Theatre of Scotland, Tate Liverpool, Cornerhouse, Contact Theatre, Hatch, Islington Mill, hÅb, The Lowry, Quarantine, Eggs Collective, David Hoyle, Small Things, Weeding Cane, Salford University and Grupo XIX de Teatro. She is also in girl band Hotpants Romance, who have released two albums and toured the world.
“I am interested in human experience, the mundane and the miraculous. I try to strip information away to the barest truth, to the startling and underwhelming inside of things, often starting with the autobiographical. I am fascinated by the blurring of art and real life, and play as much as I can with that, subsequently my life appears in my work and I also take my work out to non-art spaces and connect with people from all walks of life.”
####What people have said about her
