THE WOLF IN THE WINTER

'Lupus Hiberna, Souls Each'

On Hallowe'en, ‘The Wolf in the Winter' international artist's collective will assemble in London's East End to give a rare performance evening in the atmospheric Galleries of Club Row.
By tradition, All Hallow's Eve - derived from the Gaelic Samhain - marks the year's mortal boundary when the membrane between the living and the otherworld is at its thinnest and may be dissolved. The harvest ended and the animal slaughter begun, it is the evening when souls are temporarily released from purgatory and a place for the dead is set at the feast.
After dusk, to mark this start of the natural year's dark half, each wolf will slink off from the pack, one by one, to greet the dim flame of a new winter. There, isolated and bedazzled they throw grim semaphores back at the dead, their lupine souls each guiding the revisiting contagion to walk on the earth again.

Participating artists: Denys Blacker (Spain), Brian Catling (UK), Anet Van De Elzen (Holland), Kirsten Norrie (Scotland), Aaron Williamson (UK).

The event marks the launch of ‘Aaron Williamson: Performances / Videos / Collaborations' published by Live Art Development Agency and KIOSK (Kingston University).
