Love In The Time Of Corona (Arts Weeks 2020: Online)

Venue: Online

Book your place

An archival, memory based work, Love In The Time Of Corona investigates ageing, death, decay, deterioration, dis-ease, and tries to find equanimity during troubled, uncertain times...

The artist invites the participation of the viewer in a live one-to-one virtual encounter in her home during lockdown, to share an intimate, unrepeatable moment, after days of solitude and isolation… This is the story of women who love too much. A story of unrequited love… How do we learn to love from a distance? What if social distancing becomes the norm? Is this about social care or social control? What will the impact of these times be on our society? Will things ever be the same again?

After booking, you will recieve an email nearer the date of the performance with details of how to log in and participate.

Shabnam Shabazi has an archival practice and her signature theme is ‘home,’ exploring notions of home in multiple ways in and around her body. She is a multi-disciplinary maker and enabler of creative projects, working with object, video/digital media, installation, text/word, and has a solo and collaborative performance making practice.

Love In The Time Of Corona is a commission from Birkbeck Gender and Sexuality for Birkbeck Arts Week 2020: online.
