Firstdraft - 'Every Artist Remembered' by Agatha Gothe-Snape

We arrived at Firstdraft Gallery to find the front space full of people perched on stools and listening to the end of an artist’s talk. Hanging around in the main space, we saw the work of Agatha Gothe-Snape, who later that evening would be talking about her work. She explained how she had undertaken a number of durational performances in the gallery by inviting well-known artists to play a memory game with her. The scenario: Agatha plus invited guest artist - one session with one artist - would begin a ‘conversation’ by saying an artist’s name and the ‘conversation’ would continue as names would flow and abruptly stop, until a significant list of names was produced. It was these hand-written lists that were pinned to the walls of Firstdraft Gallery.
