On the Problem of a Universal History
— Liz Glynn

Liz Glynn will produce a site-specific performance work that raises questions of how we articulate and share our respective cultures through objects, whether it is in the past, present or in the future. The work was developed out of research undertaken during her residency at Delfina Foundation in 2018, as part of the ‘Performance as Process’ series.
