Medicine Show, a performance about transmission, translation, singing and groups.
Performing with a gang of experienced and inexperienced musicians including Steve Piccolo,
Michele Robecchi, Speech and What Archive group and Culture Brothers, A Constructed World
bring together professional and emerging artists, curators and art historians to speak and translate
music to find a new use-value.
Rather than reaching for the top the Medicine Show makes immediate and mediated relations to existing material in anticipation of what we-are-already-know together. A Constructed World is the collaborative project of Geoff Lowe and Jacqueline Riva. They make installations and events incorporating speech, conversation, not-knowing, live eels, music, dancing and absences as their media. The Paris based artists have been working together since 1993, recent events include: ‘Medicine Show: Hobbes Opera Part 2’, FRAC Garenne Lemot (2011) ‘The Speakeasy Medicine Show’, Biennale de Belleville, Paris, ‘One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show’, Club 21 Remaking the Scene, One Marylebone, London, ‘Melbourne Flottante’, Y3K Gallery, Melbourne, ‘Explaining contemporary art to live eels #6’, Villa Arson, Nice (2010). A Constructed World have had solo exhibitions at CAPC Musée d’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux, CNEAI (National Center for Printed Art), Chatou (2008) and ACCA (Australian Centre for Contemporary Art), Melbourne, (2007). ACW also facilitate Speech and What Archive, a group of professional and emerging artists, curators and art historians, including Sébastien Pluot, Marie Gautier, Anna Hess, Clémence de Montgolfier, Fabien Vallos, Etienne Bernard and Yann Sérandour. ACW currently teach at École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts d’Angers, France.
