This performance explores the relationships between the performing body, and sculpture. Shifting between roles of passive viewer, maker and material, the four performers bodies are manipulated in relation to traditional sculptural processes. Over two hours the performers build up found and sourced images and then gradually explore the breakdown of the body as a material and image. The performers and audience watch on observing and studying these proceses. This iteration will include live annotations, documenting the changes, impact and presence of the bodies in the space.
This work has been supported through Collective Gallery, Dance Base Edinburgh and The Northern Charter, Newcastle.
