Lily Hibberd (VIC) is an artist and writer who considers the notion of community and belonging in the intimate performance Being of the Book at Moores Apartment this Friday and Saturday. She invites people to participate in her performance work by loaning a book to be read, or engaging in a one-on-one reading.
Lily asks that contributors send her books about belonging to a place. She will assemble a collection of donated books, which visitors to her performance will choose from to have read aloud. Sessions will last approximately fifteen minutes and participants are encouraged to reflect on the experience afterward.
Everyone is invited to send in or nominate a book and to take part in the performance. All books will be returned after the performance.
