Description: For his fig-futures commission at The Gallery, De Montfort University, Ben Judd presented a performance, costumes, images from the university’s archives, objects based on artefacts excavated locally, and a video of the performance. Drawing on Leicester’s rich history, including the 20th century immigration of dispossessed groups, Nothing Human is Strange to Me suggested a lost community once occupied the area now inhabited by De Montfort University. Five dancers and ten singers entered the gallery from outside. Inside the gallery, the singers dressed the dancers in their costumes, which were suspended in the space. The performers and audience then moved into the back of the gallery where the performance reached its climax. Performers and audience then moved back into the front part of the gallery, where singers removed the dancers’ costumes, and the dancers exited the gallery.
