HAIR. Bo Ningen collaborate with Tim Noble and Sue Webster in a special performance during Frieze Week in London on the 15th and 16th of October 2015.
Sue Webster speaking of the collaboration says “I first saw Bo Ningen by accident at the Shoreditch 1-2-3-4 festival back in 2010. I had never seen anything like it – four Japanese gentlemen with hair down to their knees who played guitars with their teeth, naturally I was mesmerised.”
“After interviewing them for the music paper BEAT, I spent the next few weeks plucking long black hairs from the back of my sofa…this induced Tim and I to make ‘hair portraits’ of each member of the band, which metamorphised itself perfectly into the idea of creating an animation made entirely from their HAIR”.
HAIR was first conceived for the Venice Biennale, 2011 and then later at the CPH PIX festival 2012. It was most recently re-animated and presented as part of Yoko Ono’s Meltdown Festival 2013 at the Royal Festival Hall in June 2013.
The collaboration is part of a two day event curated by Sue Webster and Anne McCloy and in association with BEAT magazine featuring a diverse programme of live music and performance celebrating the best of the East London Undergound scene with major players from within the area who work both locally and internationally.
Performers including cross-gender alternative cabaret hardcore, multifarious universal cross-cosmopolitan artists, loud loud noise and artwork visuals will join forces in an experiment in the underground with an event that will coincide with Frieze Art Fair.
Experimentation in the alternative is to be encouraged. Audience and performer as one.
