Clare Whistler, artist in residence at the Centre for the History of Emotions, presents an evening of film, poetry, performance and music. Titled 'Vessels of Tears' the event brings together artists, historians, musicians and filmmakers in an exploration of water, tears and emotions.
The evening's programme includes music from singer Kerry Andrew and a film of the Sephardic Jewish cemetery by David Wright, alongside a collaborative work by Nichola Bruce and Rebecca E. Marshall shot at The Library of Water in Iceland, and a project about the sources of streams in East Sussex made with Charlotte Still. The event will also feature a discussion of medieval women and water by Hetta Howes, ceramic and textile commissions by two Icelandic artists, and the Tear Treasury Library Installation. Dr. Thomas Dixon, historian and Director of the Centre for the History of Emotions, will speak on the subject of water, tears and emotions, and Natalie Steed will premier a series of specially commissioned podcasts made on the topic.
The evening is free to attend and will close with a drinks reception. Booking is essential.
