Laughing Hole

La Ribot

4-10pm. Free. For ages 14+.

First presented at Art Unlimited at Art Basel 37, Switzerland, in 2006, the performance-installation Laughing Hole is La Ribot’s most overtly political piece. Now reworked to confront the themes of sexuality, abuse and suicide, this 6 hour durational performance will fill Whitworth Art Gallery’s Grand Hall.

Wracked with hauntingly continuous laugher, at times convulsive, at times forced, three female performers sort through hundreds of cardboard placards littering the floor of the performance space.
