New Noveta

Kelham Island Museum - Saturday - Tactical Contact

New Noveta are performance art duo, Keira Fox and Ellen Freed.


Frieze summarises their practice as ‘kinetic, discomfiting live actions’ often centred on ‘a physical task, the objective of which is not obvious. The two proceed to attempt the task before audiences, most recently in an exhibition or gallery setting. Their Sisyphean performances – which take everyday ‘task-fulfilling’ as a stock principle – magnify the dual poles of labour and estrangement within the now-mandatory management and regulation of the self.’


We are excited to welcome New Noveta to No Bounds, where they will be performing with Alex Mclean as part of Tactical Contact at Kelham Island Museum.
