The Connect10 vote: Janette Parris heads to Cardiff Story Museum for Museums at Night

| 14 January 2014 | Updated: 30 January 2014

The Connect10 vote to see where Janette Parris appears for Museums at Night has been won by Cardiff Story Museum

The Cardiff Story Museum will be hosting Jannette Parris for Museums at Night in May when they will be offering 'alternative' tours delivered by a combination of actors, comedians, ventriloquists and puppets.

Groups of visitors will go on these 'special' tours and become a part of the story being told.

More on Janette Parris:

With a focus on contemporary urban experience, English contemporary artist Janette Parris work encompasses narrative, humour working across a variety of media from performance and live music to cartoons and drawing. Emphasising the  ‘everyday’ and the common experience, Parris’s work often gives a humorous (or poignant) insight into the mundane nature of life.

In 2010, Parris’s animated video Talent was shown at Tate Britain’s Rude Britannia exhibition and her work has been shown all over the world. For Museums at Night Parris is proposing to assemble a combination of characters and weave outrageously entertaining and largely fictional stories about the history of the objects on display.
