POST REALITY : Laws of Similarity and Contagion
Humber Street Gallery, 2017

As part of the launch for Performance Magazine online, Anne Bean tapped into some principles of Sympathetic Magic to conjure with her 45 year art practice and her long-term involvement with various projects in Hull


ReROOTed festival: reliving the risk taking and experimentation of Hull Time Based Arts, co-curated by Mike Stubbs and Gillian Dyson, a revival of Hull Time Based Arts‘ (HTBA) ground breaking annual Running Out Of Time (ROOT) festival of live and experimental media art, which ran from 1992 until 2002……

The recent two-day event brought together artists, curators and producers working in live or new media art, many of whom had been involved with HTBA at some point between 1984 and 2006…………

Inside the Humber Street Gallery and following on the heels of the festival’s launch of the Performance Magazine online archive, Anne Bean performed Post Reality: Laws of Similarity and Contagion to a changing backdrop of projected archival images and texts from her own and others performances.

Bringing to life past artworks that had been written about in Performance magazine, the artist performed a range of sounds, ad hoc instruments and actions that were funny, emotional and overwhelming.

Joined by a series of collaborators, (Rob la Frenais, Richard Wilson,Yol) Bean also brought in archival images from her work with Bow Gamelan Ensemble. Together with long-time collaborator Richard Wilson they brought back to Hull their industrial and pyrotechnic performances, this time using fire crackers thrown against a wall instead of their legendary hard hat firework launchers.
