The Breakfast Sculptures, Mel Brimfield
Saturday 18 June 2011 7pm
Yorkshire Sculpture Park, West Bretton, Wakefield WF4 4LG
A specially commissioned, one-off performance conceived and produced by Mel Brimfield to coincide with her Bothy Gallery exhibition. In collaboration with Dinnington Brass Band, stars of BBC2’s A Band for Britain, the award-winning company New Art Club (Tom Roden and Pete Shenton) will present new work based on Morecambe and Wise’s infamous breakfast-making sketch, to the theme of The Stripper newly arranged by Paul Higgs.
The performance takes place in the YSP gym, which guests will find by following live brass band music in the landscape. THE BREAKFAST SCULPTURES is a perfect combination of art and popular culture, imagination and humour, and adds a further dimension to Brimfield’s exhibition This is Performance Art: Part One Performed Sculpture and Dance, at YSP until 3 July.
