Freya Gabie: Grafted Chorus
Location Whitchurch and Hengrove Community Orchard
Freya Gabie, COALHOLE A CAPPELLA, FLOW MY TEARS, 2014, Site specific performance, London.
Artist Freya Gabie has worked with local groups and a composer to create bespoke songs that the groups will come together to perform at this special summer event. Starting from The Orchard, each group will begin their own song as the previous one ends - a song grafted, like a fruit tree, onto the last. And so on, with performers branching out beyond Whitchurch Green. Locations will be available on futerperfectbristol.org nearer the time.
The event is part of a lively programme of public art projects, talks, workshops and trips that take as a starting point ideas evoked by the Whitchurch and Hengrove Community Orchard.
The Orchard can be found on Whitchurch Green behind Asda on Oatlands Avenue/near Bamfield (BS14 0AX).

Future Perfect is an ambitious public art programme for Hengrove in south Bristol, commissioned by Bristol City Council and curated by Theresa Bergne (Field Art Projects) and Jes Fernie. The programme consists of three commissions by international artists Martino Gamper, Nils Norman and David Thorpe. All three artists have had extensive, fruitful conversations with local people, groups and schools in Hengrove throughout the process of developing their work.
