THIS WAY UP/HANDLE WITH CARE by OLIVER JEFFERS
May 5 - 6, 
Gallery Elevator


In this live performance, Oliver Jeffers will recreate - at a far larger scale - a childhood game of his own invention. Beginning with a large roll of white paper, Jeffers will attempt to draw a world map upside down, labeling everything starting with north at the bottom, to the southern top. In this process, the familiarity of the places and borders will become utterly foreign within their new presentation, opening new possibilities and narratives for information we always considered definite. THIS WAY UP/HANDLE WITH CARE, invites the viewer to admit the fragile balance between perspective and truth. In the end North is only on top because we all agree it is.


Saturday May 5, from 12 to 7pm, Sunday May 6, from 12 to 5pm
