LIVEWORKS 2017 | THE FUTURE LEAKS OUT
PRESENTED BY PERFORMANCE SPACE
THURS 19 OCT – SUN 29 OCT, 10AM-6PM
“When you cut into the present the future leaks out” – William Burroughs
Responding to a sense of living on borrowed time, this exhibition explores visions of potential futures from artists investigating excess, environmental degradation, and strategies for adaptation and survival. The artists each look to the present as a transitional time where new and empathic ways of engaging with the world are emerging, but dystopia and destruction appear more and more likely.
The works included in this exhibition make the soft-horror of this situation bodily and immediate. Audiences are invited to inhabit the gestures of plants, fire insults at the gross excesses of capitalism, and deeply inhale the atomised distress excreted by the natural world.
The Future Leaks Out features new commissions from Tully Arnot, Emily Parsons-Lord and Hannah Donnelly, alongside works from Angela Goh, Tristan Jalleh and Louise Zhang.

This is a free event taking place throughout the Liveworks festival.
29 OCT, 6-7PM – Tactile & Kinesthetic Tours available. See our accessibility page for more information.
THE FUTURE LEAKS OUT FLOOR TALK WITH TULLEAH PEARCE
SAT 28 OCT, 4:00 – 5:00PM
Join the curator and artists of The Future Leaks Out for a floor talk that gives first-hand insight into the themes of the exhibition, and the driving concerns of these contemporary artworks. Join in on speculative discussions that assess our current political climate and forecast the futures we are building for ourselves.
INTRODUCTION TO ROBOTICS WITH TULLY ARNOT
SUN 29 OCT, 4:00 – 7:00PM
Arduino is a flexible microcontroller that offers limitless possibilities for animating objects and making them interact with the surrounding world. In this introductory workshop Tully will show you how to program an Arduino and give you insight into the immense number of applications for the technology in contemporary art. Working together participants will be guided through creating a cardboard robotic hand – Bring your own arduino or we can supply one.
