Eastside Projects is finally revealed as a ‘puppet state’, an art organisation taken over by impersonators, impostors and transvestites, a collection of characters that criticise, debase, mock, undermine or protest in the place and voice of others. Performances including 'Who's got the ribbon now?' by Edwina Ashton will take place at various points throughout the show.
Puppet Show is part of a series of group exhibitions and productions within Eastside Projects that examine modes of display and the construction of a public sphere. Each project invites new curatorial and artistic voices to effect change upon the existing conditions of Eastside Projects and aims to impact on artistic practice further afield.
