As part of this event artist Paul Kindersley and a carnivalesque troupe of performers will perform Ship of Fools, a play written by Kindersley and inspired by a painting by Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516). The performance will last 30 minutes and will take place amongst Kindersley’s installation of handprinted drapery in the gallery.

Caroline Wendling’s new performative walk, Habit{Ing, will take place in the House at Kettle’s Yard. Wendling has created a new evocative and sensory communal experience around the idea of inhabitation, habit, the human presence and the everyday that will take visitors on a journey through the domestic spaces of the House.

As Wendling’s work takes places in the House, numbers are limited.

Please book a place at the information desk when you arrive, and leave your bags and coats in the cloakroom before the start of the performance.

Music, performance and café/bar with cocktails designed by Caroline Wendling.

The Roundwood Gin Distillery are going to be holding pop up Gin bar on the 1stfloor
