MON£Y M£AL Round 2
with Above & Alone
Other Outdoor | Cash Machine
Venue *: Secret Location
Participatory / Community Engaged Art, Performance, Culinary
A small group are invited to participate in a performative dining experience next to a cash machine close to Glasgow's city centre: eating food that looks like money and talking about our relationships with cash. It follows on from it's previous iteration for Glasgow Open House in 2015 - with artists Emily Furneaux (formerly Shepherd) and Ellie Harrison. It is rooted in creating a more transparent dialogue, with each other, around our relationships to money. It draws its inspiration from 'Death Cafe' - a movement in which food and conversation, around our feelings towards death, are shared.
Emily Furneaux (formerly Shepherd) works amongst performance, writing, journeying, installation and culinary experiences. She trains in running and synaesthetic practices. Later this year, at the CCA, Glasgow, Emily will performatively launch a new collection of stories: 20 tales of love & sorrow - in homage to her twenty-year love affair with the cigarette. Contrary to her smoking habit - she is an ultra-marathon runner and has set up 'Artists vs Athletes' - a collaborative research project asking: what are the potential social, economic and cultural benefits of cross-pollinating art and sport?
To book, or for any questions, email Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: This is a collaborative performance - the success of MON£Y M£AL relies on the attendance of those participating. Please only book if you are 100% sure you are able, and committed to, attending at the time and date specified. The unfolding of the event is a little unpredictable - participants must be open to, and comfortable with, the unknown. Exact location details will be sent to participants two days before the event.
