Reading this weekend: Mark Booth’s The Sea is Represented by an Irregular Shape

Posted on by admin


This weekend, Devin and I (among others) are going to be reading sections of Mark Booth’s piece at Devening Projects. You can read a essay I wrote about Mark’s work by going here. In conjunction with the exhibition The Sea is Represented by an Irregular Shape Devening Projects and Editions presents God is Represented by the Sea, a durational collaborative performance by Mark Booth.

Thirteen vocalists alternate reading a five hundred fifty eight line text accompanied by electronics and bellows duo Coppice (Noé Cuéllar/Joseph Kramer joined by Mark Booth) and an animated projection by Orla McHardy.

God is Represented by the Sea will be read by:

Benjamin Chaffee, Becka Cooling Mallard, Becky Grajeda, Mark Jeffrey, Devin King, Tim Kinsella, Orla Mchardy, Adrian Moens, Judd Morrissey, Peter O’Leary, Caroline Picard, Suzanne Scanlon, and Samantha Topol.

The performance begins promptly at 2:00 and will end when the final line is read (at perhaps 4:00? Or before or after that). The audience is free to stay for the duration, come late, leave, return, leave again, etc.

The event is free and open to the public.
