The Ghosts of Nothing (FEAT. ZACKARI WATT) PRESENT “JOHNNY ROBBER”
8th September, 2021
THE GHOSTS OF NOTHING
The Ghosts of Nothing are an artistic collaboration between Sean Lowry and Ilmar Taimre.
6PM SHARP SATURDAY 6 MAY 2017
In Memory of Johnny B. Goode is an “open work” spanning several years based upon a bizarre allegorical repurposing of the fictional pop cultural figure Johnny B. Goode anachronistically re-cast as the historical figure of the alienated artist/clown known as Pierrot. To date, this work has been remedialised as a rock opera, a radio play, and a ‘world tour’ of mime-based performances.
For this performance, Newcastle-based artist Zackari Watt will present “Johnny Robber”— the first scene of In Memory of Johnny B. Goode—World Tour of Abandoned Gaol-Houses 2016-2018 (Act III of The Ghosts of Nothing— In Memory of Johnny B. Goode—World Tour 2014-2018).
The final Ghosts of Nothing project will be presented as a major exhibition at The Lock-Up in 2018 featuring video and photo documentation of the “world tour.”
The Ghosts of Nothing is an artistic collaboration between Sean Lowry and Ilmar Taimre.
