Launching our public programming for Wendy Book Club, the second session of our 2017 Summer Institute, Walter Scott will perform Wendy’s Revenge on Friday, July 21 at 7pm. For this presentation, Scott will introduce Winnipeg to Xendy, an alter ego of Wendy. Wendy is the central character in Scott’s graphic novels, sculptures, drawings and Blinky Is Reading, the installation currently occupying the span of windows that make up Plug In ICA’s street front gallery.
In a series of serious and satirical gestures Xendy embarks on a mystical intergalactic journey. In her misadventures, she travels through space and encounters psychedelic landscapes where she meets curators and takes nefarious advice from naturopaths as she struggles to find a cure for the mysterious abdominal pain that ails her.
Wendy’s Revenge is a two-person performance featuring voice, image and sound. This performance lecture style was developed by Scott as a way to address the format of the artist talk. For this iteration, Niki Little will co-present with Scott.
This special presentation is programmed in conjunction with Session II of our Summer Institute research program, Wendy Book Club, co-facilitated by Scott and Little. The performance will be followed by a small reception and the chance to mingle with Summer Institute participants and faculty. Cash bar will be open. Everyone welcome! More info here.
