MTalks ‘Leaky Narrative’ launch
Wed 31 Jan 2018, 7.00pm–8.00pm
Olivia Koh, 'Anxiety', Act I, video still, 2017.
Interval presents the launch of Leaky Narrative, an online autofiction archive. Blending autobiography, fiction and theory, autofiction is an intimate and radically subjective mode of expression. Mining the traps of memory, desire and emotion, a selection of writers and artists take a playful approach to externalising the relational constructs and slippages of our internal lives.
Leaky Narrative maps the transformative effects of literature. As each story connects and activates new stories, Leaky Narrative will curate itself, generating an open-ended archive of personal mythology. By referencing and projecting onto new contributors, meaning spiders out, and fictions are released and inhabited—narratives leak into new narratives.
Join us for the launch of this new publishing platform at MPavilion with an introduction by Leaky Narrative editor Anita Spooner, followed by readings by Miles Allinson, Jocelyn Richardson, Max Stolkin and a performance by Olivia Koh.
