Hatch: It’s About Time


Nottingham-based performance and live art platform, Hatch, has invited sixteen artists to respond to notions of time. For one night only, they storm Nottingham Castle and the Castle Pub as part of Sideshow, the official fringe to the British Art Show 2010.

Frank Abbott revisits his involvement in creating The Tales of Robin Hood 20 years ago and rewrites its architecture onto the Castle Green. British Antarctic Survey artist in residence, Chris Dobrowolski presents an artist’s talk at the Castle about the time it took to get to the Antarctic and what he found when he got there. Hetain Patel experiments with ‘stand up’ for the first time at the Castle Pub. His work-in-progress reflects on the time he spent growing his hair to explore his cultural identity. Medium Rare, a collective of Nottingham Trent University students and Southpaw Junction, recent graduates from De Montfort University, present time-themed performance installations en route. Other work inhabits unusual locations around the Castle including one-to-one performances in the gatehouse and the caves.
