Hysteria @ LiSTEN iN
LiSTEN iN is a new exhibition space for hearing unique sound works in the Bonington Atrium on the Nottingham Trent University City Campus.
Presenting works from NTU students, and local and international artists, LiSTEN iN has recently hosted The Green Man, Heather Hodkinson, NTU Fine Art; GIMP, Amelie Duchow; Nottingham Music Scene Showcase, Rob Squirrell and I’m Not From London, as well as clever art muso offerings from the minimalist female drum duo Rattle, and Church of the Cosmic Skull, with their killer rock debut ‘Is Satan Real?’
Hysteria is an exhibition of audio works focusing on female bodies, personal preference, and the examination and subversion traditional femininity. Written and performed by poet Leanne Moden, Hysteria discusses topics as divergent as gender stereotyping, friendship, rivalry, anxiety, and self-esteem. From Twitter feuds and New Year's resolutions to musings on infinity and an affectionate ode to pubic hair, Leanne's work is frank, funny and a little bit philosophical.
