Barrel of Monkeys Tournament

23 January. Free entry.

The time has come...for a barrel of monkeys tournament!

Using the handmade ceramic monkeys featured in Min-Young Her and Orissa Keane’s Monkey Film, the artists invite the public to test their mettle and compete to see who can make the longest chain of monkeys in a set time.

Test your dexterity and determination—who can make the longest chain of ceramic monkeys? Will you take home the title of The Physics Room Barrel of Monkeys champion? Will there be breakages? The winner will take home five ceramic monkeys while second to last place will receive a standard game of barrel of monkeys to practice with.

Fiction and humour combine in this collaborative exhibition by recent Ilam graduates Her and Keane. An environment of over-complication, uncertainty, and discomfort is created by a series of installations and displaced video and sound.

This will be the last weekend to see As you come down by Her and Keane before the gallery closes for the installation of Monitor 3.1.
