Art by Accident features five artworks by multi-disciplinary artist Kate Mitchell, including In Time, a 24-hour performance on a human-sized clock that will feature on MAMA’s exterior screen.
In Time will be a functioning timepiece in QEII Square shown alongside brainwaves captured in neon lights that chart the workings of the artist’s brain. On MAMA’ s roller door a sketch asks viewers to imagine an artwork that is described in text.
Inside MAMA, Hypnotised Into Being is a video performance of the artist under hypnosis responding to a series of prompts that she had prepared earlier. Kate’s work often uses humour to show that making art is just like most other jobs.
