On walking and reading and thinking…
A project curated by Emmanuelle Waeckerlé in collaboration with Chris McCabe, for the Season Poetry library at Southbank centre, London
13th January – 1st March 2015
The exhibition is part of Southbank centre ‘History is now’ festival and brings together 3 international artists who respond to the world through the written word, performative drawing, sculptures and artist publications; works that consider the book as the point of departure or coming together or (un)doing of something other.
Thomas Evans (uk/us) The Theatre of the Wobbling Worlds
The Theatre of the Wobbling Worlds is a theatre for a single performer composed of numerous pivoted stages laid out in a loose grid. Each stage presents a proposition of the world—mostly variations on the phrase “the world as…”—which is developed in an embroidered image attached to the stage.

a series of short texts and prompts inviting reveries and speculations in response to the South Bank.
Emmanuelle Waeckerle (uk/fr) PRAELUDERE (artist book, wall print, video, performance)
Writing and walking are understood here as simultaneous acts of marking and reading (space). Verbal scores are used as a catalyst for walking, writing and drawing, and as maps to explore and record the South Bank during the exhibition.
