By Written I Mean Made

Marnie Slater (NZ)

Through the voices, bodies and actions of four performers, the lives of two characters, Peter and Mary, and their domestic world are conjured and disrupted. In the form of a 19th-century drawing room play, this performance questions notions such as friendship, language and gender. The performance was inspired by notes by the French artists Claude Cahun. By Written I Mean Made presents texts in a stylized setting around which the audience can sit. The work is aligned with Marnie Slater’s diverse artistic practice, which also includes publications, painting, print, and spatial installations.
