The Oral Tradition: Jeremy Evans: The hyperlogical mythology of things tells tales of our ancestors, live from Camden Arts Centre, 11th September 7.00 - 8.00pm BST
Jeremy Evans works in drawing, performance video and text, examining structures of understanding that we use consciously or otherwise to traffic with the world around us. Myth making is one such structure and is read in many ways including as a pre-scientific way of understanding the world, the precursor to or result of ritual, allegory and truth. Radical typology reads myth as a way of taking our structures forward through a process of re-reading, re-writing and recreating. This process allows us the space into which we can project our beliefs and understanding into a narrative format, our stories impacting with our own history. Evans will spend the time at Camden examining how myth exists in the paradoxical space of an open internet where stories are shared by the action of cutting and pasting.
The Oral Tradition is a series of short projects focusing on performed narrative. The spoken word, from mythic folklore to the call centre script, is a strong influence in the work of both Jockum Nordström and Emma Hart and this programme has been developed in response to these evolving traditions. The performances take place over four weeks, drawing on diverse source material including epic poetry, digital history and contemporary social protest.

Ruth Barker The Oral Tradition: A Love Song, For Gilgamesh
Live from Camden Arts Centre Sunday 1 September, 3.00 - 3.30pm BST
A Love Song, For Gilgamesh was originally scripted for the striking location of the empty swimming pool on board the SS Rotterdam - an ex cruise-ship moored in Rotterdam Harbour. For The Oral Tradition, artist Ruth Barker will spend one week re-imagining and developing the work in the Artist's Studio, for a live public performance.
Ruth Barker is a Glasgow-based artist whose performance poetry re-tells ancient myths as resonant, current, events. Re-composing ancient stories through the lens of her own unconscious associations, personal autobiography, and mythological research, Barker's performances are hypnotic, ritualised, events. Her words are recited from memory with a concentrated focus that becomes by turns magical, claustrophobic, and cathartic.
Ruth works with a fashion designer from whom she commissions bespoke garments to be worn during her performances. For A Love Song, For Gilgamesh, Glasgow-based designer Carmel O'Brien has created a striking floor-length piece in rich russet velvet and gold lurex.

Fabienne Hess works with found digital images, retrieved from the bins of private and public computers or downloaded from the internet, to explore their seemingly endless cycle of metamorphosis. The digital image in this process becomes an immortal yet changeable form. Born and raised in Switzerland, she graduated from the Royal College of Art (London) in 2012 and has recently been awarded a residency at The White Building in Hackney Wick. 
Enchantment with Erik Davis, live from Nottingham Contemporary, 6:30 BST In the catalogue that accompanies Leckey?s exhibition, Erik Davis describes a world exploding with technologies, products, and material processes that challenge our conceptual categories with their apparent intelligence and animation. Davis will question whether we are witnessing the emergence of a new animism ? a spiritual or mystical reading of nature, objects and machines. Erik Davis is a writer and lecturer based in San Francisco who has written extensively on technoculture, music, and spirituality. Every week he explores ?cultures of consciousness? on his online podcast Expanding Mind.

OOO: Screening and discussion
6:15pm - 8.30pm, live from Nottingham Contemporary 
What does it mean to imagine that everything exists equally in the world, and that human beings have no more status than atoms or alpacas? Object-oriented ontology (?OOO?) puts things (rather than human beings, science or social relations) at the heart of studying what it means to exist. It is a new philosophical movement that has had a decisive influence on the work of both artists and exhibition-makers. A discussion with philosopher Graham Harman, curator Michelle Kasprzak and lecturers Kevin Love and Francis Halsall will address implications for the artwork as object.

My Little Paradise, talk live from Middelheim Museum, Belgium On the occasion of the exhibition My Little Paradise, the Middelheim Museum organizes an artist talk with the participating artists. In 2012 the Middelheim Museum added a new exhibition area to its grounds ? the Hortiflora flower garden (previously part of the Nachtegalen Park), a formal garden concealed behind a screen of dense foliage. This year the museum?s summer exhibition, My Little Paradise, puts the Hortiflora firmly in the spotlight, for the garden?s design corresponds to the idea of the hortus conclusus, the enclosed garden which in art and literature has been laden with meanings since the Middle Ages. Today the enclosed garden has become an ordinary part of our everyday environment, the perfect place to create a little paradise of our own. But what?s attractive to one is banal, even disturbing, to another. Seven national and international artists reflect about the art historical significance of the garden of Eden and about the contemporary, social significance of a paradise. My Little Paradise is a group exhibition, curated by Hans Op de Beeck and Sara Weyns.

Althea Greenan, Curator of the Women's Art Library, Goldsmith's College presents a brief history of the collection and considers how collections can create a self perpetuating life of their own.
Emma Bennett & Antonia Barnett-McIntosh: Accent, live from Arnolfini, Bristol, 7:30pm Using extensive transcriptions, close listening and improvisatory techniques, Accent is a duet, conversation and mutual impersonation by Antonia, a composer and Emma, a performer. This performance is a loose reconstruction, a formal experiment, a stupid game in which Emma and Antonia attempt to impersonate one another?s voices (accents, vocal tones, intonation, sentences). They imitate imitations, talk about talking, and mispronounce words. They hear themselves again, filtered through one another. Sometimes personal, sometimes cultural. And sometimes just like music.
Live from Arnolfini in Bristol, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Mountain Language, 7:30 BST An audio adaptation of Harold Pinter?s Mountain Language ? a play that acts as an indictment against the bans and regulations enforced upon speech during 1980's Britain and the banning of the Kurdish Language in Turkey. Written in 1988, Pinter?s Mountain Language dramatizes the story of a banned language from the mountains, yet he presents a world where the only language spoken by the characters is English (spoken by both oppressor and oppressed). Lawrence Abu Hamdan will highlight and enhance this confusion of oppressor and oppressed by staging an audio adaptation of the play performed behind a screen to disorientate the ears of the audience - positioning them as enforcers whose role it is to determine which of these voices are forbidden and which are permissible. The performance continues the themes explored in Abu Hamdan?s Aural Contact project ? a scrutiny of the ways in which what we hear is often distorted, manipulated and controlled to achieve political ends. Abu Hamdan will cast performers via a voicemail audition system, inviting participants to telephone an automated voicemail service reading lines from the play ? and selecting eight characters.
