Live Screen @ The Herbert
Live Screen @ The Herbert is here!
On Friday 16th March come and see 4 brand new performances at The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum.
With the help of DASH and The Herbert we have commissioned 4 artists who have difficulty leaving their homes for periods of time due to disability, to each develop a new performance that will be streamed live into the Herbert Museum and Art Gallery, Coventry.
Through this project are endeavouring to push the boundaries of accessibility in creating and delivering performance. We hope to show that you can exhibit live performances by performers who find it difficult to be present using contemporary technology whilst maintaining quality audience encounters.
16 March 2018
7 – 10 pm
The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry
The streamed performances will also be broadcast on our YouTube Channel live should you be unable to attend the live event. This can be found here:

Edie Jo Murray
Edie Jo Murray’s live screencast performance ‘The Doppelganger’ explores notions of identity in a digitised world. The normally one-to-one relationship between user and screen is pried open; exposing fractured traces of user 711392, evidenced through autofill predictions and targeted advertising.
The Ma of Equilibrium
And an audience
Join the group to join the ‘game’ taking place at Live Screen at the Herbert, Coventry on 16th March 2018. (Breaks will be taken during this time).
Interact from your phone or from the laptop in the gallery or from the comfort of your own home. Be part of the performance.
The monkey mind by nature is a slippery character. A rational mind experiencing Asperger’s creates its own challenges, when interacting with each other this creates a mine field of a reality with all of its triggers, reactions and pitfalls.
The Ma of equilibrium is the interaction between two persona trying to maintain a balance of mind and physical body. Fill the spaces between the two persona with your questions, comments and other interactions. Communicate with both and experience a view of the mind.
Join the game, experience the process.
During the performance an imprint of the process will be made within the space so anyone that is not physically present at the gallery during the performance may also enter into the ‘spirit’ of the event. It is intended that a limited number of imprints will be available to purchase shortly after the event.
I will be painting live at this event and streaming into The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry via a go pro to give my perspective when painting.
My current discipline is drawing and painting, which are on different scales of surfaces such as; paper and canvases. I draw and paint portraits, I produce visually stunning imagery through the application of paint as a collage.
My style has been influenced by my constraints and dexterity. My interest with American popular culture, 1980s iconography and cityscapes such as; London and New York grew from listening to and watching 80s music videography as well as extensive travel to New York.
My work aims to have a vibrant appearance to the surfaces and visual ambiguity. Furthermore, I do live streaming on Facebook and Instagram where people across the world can watch me in my creative state.
The Heimlich Sessions
Five performances drawn from the same set.
Five identities derived from 14-year-old forum interactions.
A joyous sonic celebration of the other, the odd and the unusual.
There have been several periods where, for various reasons, I felt uncomfortable leaving the house. During these times I often found online forums (including spaced-out.com & blueblood.net) to be my connection to some form of community where my fears of being perceived as an oddball, weirdo or freak were pacified.
Subsequent therapy sessions focused not on fixing what was wrong with me, but of accepting that I was alright. Eccentric, certainly. Queer, definitely. But no more flawed than anybody else. And absolutely not fundamentally defective as a human being.
So in celebration of the peculiar in us all, I’m making a 3 hour set based on the teenage tendency to play guitar in their bedrooms for hours, making band names based on forum conversations all those years ago. Including costume changes, ukuleles, electric fiddles, and acapella classics you can expect sets from:
Grote von Klappers (The Queen of Duisburg)
TripleKnobJoint with SnatchMembrane
Pigspingdle & The Swinging Dingleberries
Ore – Chasm
Join us at The Herbert for a proper gig atmosphere or online for such classics as ‘Longer Than Your Dick (pic)’ and ‘I’ve got a second floor fallout shelter (& I’ll give you the key)’.
This project has been made possible with the support of Arts Council England, DASH and The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum.
