Welcome to whatsthebigmistry’s TAKEOVER.
At the time of writing the copy the artist was thinking a lot about horses, orchestral conductors, love, lament, therapy, intimate conversations with furniture and how to be less lonely and more motivated in the wide expanse of the white gallery walls. So followed a Laboratory of experiments, special guests and an invitation to feast and meet the artist. Here’s what happened:
This event was part of whatsthebigmistry’s Gallery TAKEOVER #Destressfess. For 2 weeks artist whatsthebigmistry (aka Priya Mistry) occupied the very new and large main Gallery 1 at the Attenborough Arts Centre. During the TAKEOVER Mistry invited a variety of artist collaborators from visual, dance, socially engaged and performance arts practices to work in a live, experimentally and immediate fashion. All collaborations formed ‘Working In Process’’ which are then shared over social media and presented live and installed as ideas in their first ever iterations. Forming 2 weeks of firsts.
whatsthebigmistry is artist Priya Mistry, who works across disciplines straddling performance, live art, visual arts and dance.
Priya makes experimental, playful explorations around the all the possibilities choreographies and relationships objects, bodies, spaces. Her practice adds to discourse around topics explored in the work, particularly mental health, equality and feminine politics, identity, race, sex, gender and queerness.
