APRIL 2012: ‘The Museum of the Muse.’
After our previous two successful events, A.M.I will be doing 5 weekly explorations of the history of the muse and inspiration within art, at the Artist Residence Hotel, throughout April 2012.

Lucy recreates Egon Schiele’s ‘Wally…’
Frankie’s Loie Fuller-inspired Isis wings dance…
Energetic performance poetry from Chris Parkinson…
Emma, Johanna & Frankie pose as Picassos ‘3 dancers’, with the original painting projected onto them…a strange and dark soundtrack played to this 30 min revolving pose.
Kevin & Rebecca accompany Kate’s interpretation of Man Ray’s iconic ‘L’Violon d’Ingres’, with piano & cello….
….eventually accompanied by some musical saw.
The final pose- the lazy cabaret.
Emma, Donna, Rosy, Lucy, Kate, Frankie, Johanna, Freyja, Rebecca & Kevin.
