Commissioned by Elephant Magazine and Aslerkal Lates with the support of Middlesex University.
The work focuses on the relationship between the body and street materials, often the stuff of street furniture (fluorescent light, glass, metal). We draw attention to the unmade, the rudimentary nature of materials forming into sculptural statements. The purpose is to both inhibit (the body) and inhabit (the space/material). We imagine performance events to be malleable and straying, a faltering landscape of bodies and materials.
We take inspiration from American artist Fred Sandback (1943-2001) who describes the complexity of a line in space to create an ambivalence between interior and exterior.
The artistic exploration is framed by the use of lightweight materials to define new spaces and pathways; shifting attentions – Object/body/stillness; the body constrained/packed into confined spaces, pushing against windows, and surfaces.
