On the 27th of November Performer/serial digressor/intellectual entertainer and curator David Ellis presents 'David Ellis's Pele-mele' . Pele-mele aka Pell-mell.
As part of the Horse Hospital's 25th anniversary and his occasional association with it, Ellis assembles an evening that rethreads themes at the core of his own 30yr zigzagged practice. Ellis like many others consider The Horse Hospital a place in which he'd honed his craft, his hyphenated sensibility. In close tandem with The Horse Hospital's own time-line Ellis embarked on a long, intensive period of travelling deep into Eastern Central Europe, his "incursions into lesser-known histories " in 1993. Although skipping frequently between the countries of the Baltic triangle Estonia,Latvia and Lithuinia it was Kaunas/Vilnius,Lithuania where he continued to return to over the years acting as a "cultural attache without portfolio", trafficker of both the intangible and "stuff".
To mark the anniversary of The Horse Hospital and his unapologetic commitment to pan-europeanism, of his being a British European artist, Ellis brings together artists, former co-collaborators & friends from throughout Europe to join him as he unknits both his own and aspects of Eastern Europe's lesser-known histories.
