Melanie Gilligan - The Miner's Object
The Holburne Museum, Bath
16.30hrs Sunday 4 November

A parable about experience and knowledge. Staged in the Holburne Museum of Art the choice of site teases out a connection with late 18th century Bath as a place of both sensuous pleasures and an egalitarianism of learning.

The Miner's Object is a storytelling performance in which a miner discovers a strange, unknown object, a discovery that unfolds a debate about the social and material qualities of knowledge.
