Latest update from Coastal Currents

‘Burgoyne and his colleagues move back and forth, following the changing, sporadic rhythms of the traffic and tides while emphasising the limits of the space.’

The Warrior Square Conveniences project sees the space above this public toilet transformed into a stage by a different artist each weekend of the festival. On the 3rd of September Greig Burgoyne takes over, in a durational performance testing relations between body and space. WARRIOR SQUARE CONVENIENCES
Join us each weekend for a performance atop the public toilets at Warrior Square – seafront side of the main road. Some are durational and some are repeated but all will make you see this unused space in a new light.

GREIG BURGOYNE – ISLAND WORKOUT
On top of Warrior Square Public Toilets

A durational performance testing relations between body and space

Burgoyne’s practice unites process-led, rule-based repetition, endurance, accumulation and duration.
Burgoyne seeks to test or expand alternative relations between body and site with regard to space and thinking. Be they absurd or beguiling, Burgoyne proposes new dialogues and frameworks that seek to generate a condition of becoming, translation and flux instead of stasis; a site of experience rather than merely location.

The chosen site is an elevated, in-between space; buffeted by the sea and passed by a constant flow of traffic. Burgoyne will seek to immerse us in its island-like status, something of a drifting Raft of the Medusa, whilst acknowledging its position as the roof of public toilet and all that this may evoke.

The performance and subsequent film to be shown in the window of the British Heart Foundation shop located on the seafront will see Burgoyne and his colleagues move back and forth, following the changing, sporadic rhythms of the traffic and tides while emphasising the limits of the space. The static toilet roof becomes a turbulent site, seemingly swaying and rocking as an absurd keep-fit workout of sorts ensues.

Greig Burgoyne was born in Glasgow, Scotland; he studied at the HAK Vienna and Royal College of Art London. Recent projects 2016/17 included Quadraturin La confection Idéale Tourcoing France; Breathing Space in collaboration with La Verita Dance Company Brussels at Centre Culturel Balavoine France; Draw to Perform 3 London; Scapelands DrawingBox Tournai (B); WhiteNoise Centre for Recent Drawing London; GapFillers Briggait project spaces 1+2 Wasps Glasgow; FAX Karst Plymouth curated by The Drawing Centre New York

LOUISE ASHCROFT - Monsters of the Deep: Sea Monster Band

In early maps of the world, drawings of sea monsters signified unknown marine territory, and since the beginning of cinema, such creatures have been rife in Hollywood. Today these beasts are experiencing a cultural renaissance, as images of washed-up monsters frequently go viral online.

Are they click-bait hoaxes striving for online attention, and if so, why has there always been this cultural need for ‘monsters of the deep’ as signifiers of otherness? Instead of answering this complex question, performance artist Louise Ashcroft has founded the rock band Monsters of the Deep and is organising a monster-movie music concert on the roof of a public toilet overlooking the waves, in the hope of summoning the creatures themselves. Exploring how we conjure monstrosity through sound, the performances will feature interpretations of soundtracks from monster action scenes in films like It Came From Beneath the Sea and Attack of the Crab Monsters.

If you’re a local musician or band who would like to take part please email monstersofthedeephastings@gmail.com

Louise Ashcroft has exhibited at The Government Art Collection, Latitude Festival, Arebyte, AVU Prague, TEDx Hackney, Turner Contemporary, Modern Art Oxford and comedy festival The Boring Conference. She studied at Oxford University, Birkbeck and The Royal College of Art and was recently in residence at Tate Modern and Camden Arts Centre. Louise makes live performances, videos and installations reflecting upon cultural behaviours and traditions.
