FLASHnight: Sauerkraut Water Slide

Jimmy Nuttall

All Spaces
4 Feb 2019–4 Feb 2019
Opening 6pm Monday February 4th

Sauerkraut Water Slide is a new developmental and performative work by Jimmy Nuttall. For this performance he will be working with contemporaries, Bonnie Cummings, Leah Landau, Luigi Vescio and Nicholas Smith. The work combines clog footwear and sauerkraut – a home staple of Jimmy’s, made by his home sharer and close friend. Sauerkraut Water Slide will take place in the gallery and in an imagined downtown city apartment in Melbourne.

The artist would like to acknowledge that this show takes place on the unceded land of the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin Nation. They pay their respects to their Elders – past, present and emerging.
