Residence artist Tom Marshman will share a new performance inspired by Gone with the Wind.
“I’m trying to channel Scarlette O”Hara, She lost everything, she had more than her fair share of bad luck but managed to build it back up again. I’m broke, I didn’t get my Arts Council grant and I’ve been shopping in Poundland but watching the classic film Gone with the Wind, has offered me some support. Set amongst the backdrop of the Civil War Scarlette makes a promise to herself that she will never be hungry again and now so do I.”
Tom Marshman, April 2015.
This event is part of Residence in residence. This month, Arnolfini’s level 1 galleries have become a temporary home to Residence, a collective of Bristol based artists who make performance and live art. United by a curiosity towards each other’s practices and a commitment to supporting each other, they share resources, space and knowledge.
Residence have recently moved out of The Milk Bar, where they were housed for the past six years under Bristol City Council’s Capacity scheme. They are now looking for a new space to call home.
Current Residence artists are: Action Hero, Astrid Breel, Alice Human, Bella Fortune, Ed Rapley, Ella Good & Nicki Kent, Folake Shoga, Ophelia Bitz, Jasmine Loveys, Jo Bannon, Sara Zaltash, Sylvia Rimat, Ria Hartley, Tom Marshman, Zoe Heron.
