Commission: Lion's honey

Performance work by Agatha Gothe-Snape

During the course of Making art public, a performer, including the artist herself, will occupy space within the exhibition to read selected texts. Starting with David Grossman’s Lion’s honey, a gift to the artist from John Kaldor, the performers will accumulate a collection of books of their own choosing to read.

Lion’s honey will take a break for a few weeks in between December and January.

The program resumes on 4 January 2020
