The Barracks
12th – 18th March: 11.30am to 2.30pm and 5.30pm to 8.30pm daily

One woman, one room, one week.

Artist Kate Guelke presents The Bare Necessities – a durational performance as part of the Imagine Festival.

Guelke will spend the duration of the festival barricaded in a small room at The Barracks. The artist places herself in a contradictory space: in between the public and private, vulnerability and privilege. She will be accepting visitors and gifts, depending on her audience for those bare essentials necessary to maintain human life: food, water, company.

Kate gets back to basics and asks: what does a person really need to survive?
