Odd Comic | A Nation of Pet Lovers and Pet Lover-haters

Photo by Holly Bodmer.


Join a panel of pet-owners, their pets and some ambivalent people to discuss the behaviour and language associated with pet-ownership.

A public discussion hosted by Live Art duo Odd Comic (Holly Bodmer and Dot Howard) in anticipation of their new project My Champion Heartache.

My Champion Heartache is a work-in-progress inspired by attempts at pet ownership. Stories of lost pets conjure thoughts of love, loss, absence and companionship. Holly’s hamster escaped and lived ‘semi-wild’ underneath the floorboards for three months until it was found swimming in the bath. Dot has a regretful anguish at once putting a pet rat’s face up against a kitten’s face in a controlled experiment and not cleaning out the fish tank often enough.

Odd Comic will host an unusual and interactive evening in the café and present some of their research and development findings.
