Behaviour 2012 and Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art:

Hole In My Pocket: The universe is very big, you are very small act accordingly

Mon 2 Apr - Thu 31 May 2012 | Mon-Sat: noon-11pm // Performances: Sat 21st & Thurs 26th April | Free

Hole In My Pocket present an exhibition, performance and culinary experience attempting to understand the concept of the moment when viewed against the history of the universe.

With exhibition and installation pieces spanning the foyer, cafe bar and restaurant throughout the two months, the duo will also curate two special performances as part of the Arches Cafe Bar Makeover series, with theatre maker Gary McNair presenting a series of talks and performances on the concept of time-anxiety as diners enjoy a time-themed three-course menu.

Scottish architect-artist duo Hole In My Pocket have been involved in diverse projects within the realm of art and the architecture since 2002. Their work includes exhibition design, painting, video, writing, performance art and conceptual pieces, including the HIMP Sunday Service at the Arches in 2010.

Restaurant performances with Gary McNair:
Sat 21st & Thurs 26th April, Thurs 31st May | 5.30pm | Three course meal & drink: £9.95
