Saturday 12th December, 6 -9 pm
Borstal cordially invites you to ‘A Conversation between Oliver Laric, Wojciech Kosma and Paul O’Kane’
On Saturday 12th December 2009 the last work exhibited at Borstal Space will be
‘A Combination of Works by Wojciech Kosma and Oliver Laric’.
This piece has formed a focal point for Borstal to curate an event which will investigate the question of ‘the self’ in relation to technology and partnerships.
The event will be held at Donlon Books on the Saturday evening and will feature a Conversation between Wojciech Kosma, Oliver Laric and Paul O’Kane.
In relation to Kosma and Laric’s practice Paul will give a Bretonian reading of a literary text describing a technologised everyday environment and event accompanied by an interactive poetry recital.
This will lead to an open discussion between the artists and audience which will be intercepted throughout the evening by performances with the potential for audience participation.
