(I Could Go On Singing) Over The Rainbow by FK Alexander
With live accompaniment from Glasgow-based noise band Okishima Island Tourist Association, FK Alexander sings along to the recording of the last time Judy Garland ever sang Over The Rainbow, four months before her death. Stand hand in hand with FK, and witness others do the same. This durational performance is an intimate interactive live experience of undivided attention and love. It’s a loud but loving noise.

FK Alexander is a Glasgow based Performance Artist whose aesthetically driven work is concerned with issues of wounds, recovery, aggressive healing, radical wellness, industrialisation and noise music. She predominantly puts her body at the centre of ritualised, time/task based live art, in often ridiculous attempts to communicate ideas around new language, new violence and new love. FK collaborates often with a range of live artists and noise musicians, and has shown work across the UK, Europe and the USA.
