Still time to visit Willow Court

Part of the Barracks building at Willow Court last week.
THE performance titled Entry by Mirror Only has now concluded but there are still more opportunities to visit Willow Court this week. Mike Parr completed his 72-hour presentation at noon yesterday, but his Asylum exhibition continues today and this weekend.

Selected items from Parr’s previous performances have been curated to form Asylum, a one-off installation occupying different buildings including the Barracks, Carlton House/C Ward, Alonnah House/A Ward, and the Occupational Therapy building, with video, sound, photos, objects and an interactive piece.
  • Open today, Monday June 13, 12-4pm
  • Open Saturday June 18, 12-4pm
  • Open Sunday June 19, 12-4pm
Entry is now general admission, no bookings required. Dark MoFo still requests that visitors bring a mirror to add to the exhibition.

The exhibition contains disturbing content and themes, and may not be suitable for children. Curated by Jarrod Rawlins, the project is presented by Mona and Dark MoFo in partnership with Detached and the Derwent Valley Council.

There will be occasional street entertainment and food vans in the New Norfolk central business district until Sunday. More than 40 local shops and businesses have been decorated with red lights and mirrors in support of Dark MoFo and many private homes have also adopted the same theme. See the gallery below or head out and see them live this week.
