Jacco Weener is a performance artist working with sound. Leader of the notorious Dutch underground rock band Gul Night Out, Jacco has recently turned his hand to what he describes as “existential historical cabaret”. Jacco will make work “on-the-spot” – both at Humber Street Galleries and in the city – using the role of Christianity and the Church in the lives (and deaths) of sailors, and those who are in any way affected by the tides of the sea. A part of Jacco’s exhibition is reserved for personal reflections and experience from Hull people he meets during his residency, which will be presented as oral history.. The focus is on the past. Especially the city’s turbulent social history, and the trawler campaign in the 1960s.
“I will collaborate with local churches and their parishioners. And work alongside Rotterdam’s and Hull’s Maritime Museum as well as the local population. Hopefully it will bring a clear picture of the perception of life and death on the open sea. During the first days of my stay I will do the research. On the last two days, whilst presiding over a number of Sunday Services I will present the result.”
Exhibition times: Friday-Saturday: 2pm-11pm. Sunday: 12pm-6pm.
Church Service times: Friday-Saturday: 3pm-4pm 6:30pm-7:30pm. Sunday: 1:30pm-4:30pm.
