Jupiter Artland has commissioned South African artist Mary Hurrell to create a two-part performance for the occasion of Edinburgh Art Festival.
Combining movement, music, costume and sculpture, Hurrell creates immersive and unsettling performances that distort and disturb the body. Water, with its attendant notions of fluidity, surface tension and wetness, is the starting point for Hurrell’s site-specific work for Jupiter Artland, which will unfold in two parts on the opening and closing weekend of the Festival.
The first performance will take place on 27 July at the site of Joana Vasconcelos’ 2019 commission Gateway.
The second performance will take place on 24 August as part of Jupiter Rising, the sculpture park’s annual weekend of music, art and performance in the closing weekend of Edinburgh Art Festival.
Jupiter Rising takes place within Jupiter Artland’s iconic landscape of installations by world-leading artists and comprises an inventive and experimental programme of live music, sound and performance, artist moving-image and film programmes, talks and discussion, artist-led workshops for all ages, culinary feasting and a magical celebration.
Tickets to Jupiter Rising from £75.
