This night operates widely on the premise of divining points – if not time, what is the fabric from which there can be scattering of weather reference points? In a way, it’s to do with a kind of overwhelming comprehension. In Gide’s ‘Urien’s Voyage’, the reader is essentially aware that we’re encountering an allegory, even more so essentially a ‘voyage’, so where does the narrative thrust exist within the mind when such a spacious, surreal, sensuous space is constantly conjuring environments? The almost pandering, luxurious, frustrated-earnest-pious nature of Urien and the regard/relationship with his fellows, his melodrama stasis with Ellis is what this night is about – nebulous prisms.
8pm, April 9, Serial Space, 33 Wellington St, Chippendale
