An exhibition of recent works by collaborative duo LOW PROFILE spanning live performance, video, installation and artists’ publication.
Their work investigates ideas around survival, preparedness and perseverance, testing their own commitment to keeping going and not giving up. Drawing on a range of cultural reference points they address themes of everyday survival with humour, absurdity and a light touch, actively calling into question notions of expertise, usefulness and redundancy.
By setting up situations that are inviting and engaging, LOW PROFILE’s idiosyncratic embrace of the impossible, the endless and the obsessive, magnify and put on show our experiences of everyday life.
As part of the exhibition, LOW PROFILE will undertake a 12 hour durational performance in which they attempt to read, learn from and test each other on the advice offered in The Book of Survival (by Anthony Greenbank), a 1960s publication that promises to leave its readers mentally equipped to ‘survive’ anything.
Performance: Sat 25 May, 9am – 9pm. Come and go as you please.
Artists’ talk: Sat 8 Jun, 2.30pm, FREE
The artists will discuss their exhibition and wider practice.
LOW PROFILE are supported by the Artsadmin Artists’ Bursary Scheme
