The Tate Modern, 3 March 2018

Shape Arts | Noëmi Lakmaier | The Task of Containing | Tate Modern

Noëmi Lakmaier is a performance artist based in London, who has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally. In 2008 she was awarded Shape Arts’ inaugural Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary (ARMB) and accompanying three month residency at Camden Arts Centre. To celebrate the ten year anniversary of this artist award Noëmi has created a new work for Ghosts in the Machine, Shape’s second Tate Exchange programme, entitled The Task of Containing. Taking place outdoors between Tate Modern and the Thames, this installation and durational performance piece is an homage to Adam Reynolds’ unrealised performance ‘Sisyphus’ and explores themes of futility and meaning through repetitive and seemingly meaningless acts. The Task of Containing will take place on Saturday 3 March from 12 to 4pm in the café area outside Tate Modern’s main entrance; all are welcome to attend.

    MKCDC at Bradwell Abbey / Angels at the Abbey

    YOU’RE NOT ALONE

    MKCDC’s latest community project will see us harness the haunting power of the beautiful song - You’re not alone - by Cathal Smyth (also known as Chas Smash from Madness). We hope to unite families and friends in the UK and abroad who have been kept apart by Covid-19, and who are feeling the pinch of isolation in the current financial crisis. We’ll be working with a diverse range of organisations and schools, bringing together voices from across the community in a massed choir. This will culminate in the live-streamed performance of the song within the grounds of Bradwell Abbey at our annual Angels at the Abbey event with a live youth string orchestra.
