JoWonder's Pop-up Art Installation & Performance in Bethnal Green

JoWonder is an artist I met at a special event about pop ups earlier this week.  She's managed to get the use of the Belfrey at the historic church St John on Bethnal Green for her work 6 Days Goodbye Poems Of Ophelia and special linked performance of JoWonder And The Psychic Tea Leaves, and it sounds like it's going to be great.

"Details of a specific event:
JoWonder And The Psychic Tea Leaves: Performance art opening and closing the exhibition featuring  experimental musician Ansuman Biswas
Event/exhibition description:
Animated bacterial paintings of Ophelia were filmed in time lapse over six days. In Shakespeare's play Hamlet Ophelia drowns and is suspected of suicide. This Ophelia finds her true self in a place between life and death receiving messages across time and space on an electronic answer phone.
The performance provides an audience interactive piece based in the belfry to add a new dimension to the Ophelia story, drawing from the dark side of classic fairy tales with a blend of music and improvisation."
