Artist Lucienne Cole’s work, frequently combining video, sound and live performance, borrows from categories and subcategories of popular music and culture. Humorous, playful and sometimes even awkward or embarrassing, there is a stoical and absorbing grace to her interventions.
67 Made in Heaven, 2010
Following a visit to Whitstable, Lucienne Cole gathered popular elements of local culture to choreograph a performance in the Bingo Hall. Building up through various phases to its finale on the stage at the hall, Cole included the music of Prokofiev and The Smiths in her performance. 67 Made in Heaven received assistance from the local Scouts Brass Band, and a nearby bakery provided novelty pastries, or ‘happy cakes’, as refreshments.
