This immersive art experience was created as part of the Humber Street Sesh 2017 in Hull. The audience were invited into Kingston Art Group Gallery to take part in a re-imagined 1970's quiz show presented by two gold suited monkeys 'Bob Monkeyhouse' and 'Bernie the Bolt'.
This 9 minute short film by Mark Richardson aka CODHEAD documents an evening of artistic entertainment offered to the people of Hull. This night was devised and curated by Anna Bean as part of the POT LUCK at FRUIT event that was presented to celebrate the first week of HULL being the 2017 UK City of Culture. ANIMAL MAGIC was the last of four 'sold out' nights and was commissioned by Hull 2017.
Welcome to the Monkey House
Anna was commissioned by arts organisation Art for Hull to create an Art installation at Hull Fair, one of Europe’s largest travelling funfairs, which comes to Hull for one week a year. The installation was conceived, designed and built within three weeks. Over the 10 days of Hull Fair a team of photographers photographed members of the public with performers dressed as monkeys and a rabbit.
