Writing the Future, 2021
Gerald Curtis, Habib William Kherbek and Claire Zakiewicz
Artists Claire Zakiewicz and Gerald Curtis created ‘Writing the Future’ together in 2021.
Originally conceived as a new performance painting, ‘Writing the Future’ was commissioned by Creative People and Places Hounslow for ‘Future Visions’, an exhibition of works that signal a positive future for Hounslow High Street and its communities.
Writing the Future is a 45-minute performance that explores possibilities of interpretation, cooperation and collaborative practice methods to create an open outcome. The band Dirtagnan created the soundtrack for the performance.
On November 10, 2021 the filmed documentation of the performance by videographer Cristina Schek will be screened in Watermans Studio 1, followed by a short talk and Q&A led by the artists.
The evening will finish with drinks and viewing of the Future Visions exhibition in the Riverside Gallery.
