Corpus Christie, Live Performance, 2017
Corpus Christie is a live performance, involving the reading of a collection of poetry from Konstantinos Kavafis and Antonis Sideras. Sidera’s poetry is curated alongside Kavafi’s, forming a dialogue between the two which aims to bridge the practices of the two queer artists working roughly 100 years apart. This assemblage of poetry seeks to explicate the two artist’s views on the concepts of life, time and ephemerality, as well as the ways in which they responded to them.
Corpus Christie was presented at 94 Walcott Street with Fringe Arts Bath Festival on the 27th of May 2017. The performance was part of between - a live art and video exhibition curated by Vicky Vatcher.
