An evening with Primrose
By Abigail Conway with Ross Flight and oenothera biennis
Interactive installation by day, concert by night
Escape life on demand. Watch and listen as HD cameras and bespoke technology create a unique soundscape from the movement of a flower blooming. All you have to do is surrender to the act of waiting.
By day you can drop into the installation between 12.00-16.00, meet the technology and explore plants in detail through video and audio installations, and the chance to dissect a flower.
For 3 nights only - a concert in which the flowers are performers invites audiences to surrender to the act of waiting. Doors open at dusk (18.15** check back here for exact opening time)
Each evening event will include a free drink on arrival, and a series of accompanying performances by special guests will be presented alongside the evening bloom.
**Evening Primrose flowers have a unique circadian rhythm, one that adjusts to new locations and the precise sunset of the location.
