“Thank you so much for sharing this astonishing work. I found it very inspiring.“
Audience response Expanded Landscapes 2022
Following our previous works (Un)touched and (De)figured, we have developed a performance installation for the environs of Canary Wharf. Synthesising movement with architectural forms constructed from materials resonant of the built environment, Expanded Landscapes points to the notion of transience in the midst of surroundings that are shifting and rebuilding. playing with cycles of urgency, resistance and erosion acting in tension with the false certainty of structures. Viewers are free to watch from multiple perspectives. The density of colour changes according to the quality of light over the passing of the day.
“Woodhouse’s choreography is as intricately layered as Rackowe’s sculptures, and her curiosity in the relationship between performer and spectator invests the formidable structure with tactility and emotional depth.“
