Slap bang in the middle of the GI Festival, DEATHANDDADA open the top floor of a tenement and invite you to their inaugural show, Aphrodite at the Water Hole. 17 European artists have been invited into 2 neighbouring family homes to create works that contend with domestic life in rented accommodation. Named for one of the most visionary totalitarian sculptures to fall through the floor of a flat, Aphrodite at the Water Hole invites the possibility of freedom, hope and disaster. Artists with precious little thought of a lease will take residence alongside 2 families and drip their egos all over the place. The opening on April 24th will include performances: live music by Wounded Knee and Noma on 25th.

DEATHANDDADA is a collaboration between artists Rachel Lowther, Amalia Theodorakopoulos and Fritz Welch.

Flats 2/1, 2/2, 5 Hillhead St, at the top of the steps from Great Western Road.
Open 2-6pm on two weekends (April 24th & 25th and May 1st & 2nd) and by appointment in between.
