Art Night: A Tittle-Tattle-Tell-A-Tale Heart, A Reading by Athena Papadopoulos
4 May 2020
Athena Papadopoulos’ book, A Tittle-Tattle-Tell-A-Tale Heart, read from start to finish by the artist herself, in the context of the remarkable Treasures of the British Library display. Inverting the way in which we often consume novels, serialised in excerpts and chapters; this performance delivers the experimental narrative of the artist’s first book in one fell swoop. A novel that is variously a diary, a detective narrative, a love story, and a collage, the book is an artwork comprising two parts. The first composed in eyeliner, and the second a frantic retelling of the previous.
