We do not speak but confine ourselves… @ ICA, Jun 22

21 June 2016

The We do not speak but confine ourselves briefly to the surface (a dramaturgy of interiority) evening event is happening at London’s ICA on June 22.

Reflecting on the work of ceramic artist Betty Woodman, the trans-generational live event builds on the format of a screening to create a situation between theatre and exhibition using films, objects, movement, singing and speaking, while reflecting on interiority as a collective experience and “the affective potential of the surface”. It takes its title from J.W. Goethe’s Theory of Colours and aims to think through “feminised expectations and the possibility of an event as a decorative object”.

Artists, writers, performers and film makers taking part include Hanne Lippard, Chantal Akerman, Susanna Davies-Crook, Christina Chalmers, Laura Morrison, Quinn Latimer & Paolo Thoraten-Nagel, and Nina Wakeford among others, as well as Sara Kathryn Arledge, Carys Briggs, Lauren Godfrey, Natalie Häusler, Tamara Henderson, Laida Lerxtundi, Rose O’Gallivan, Olga Pedan, Lisa Robertson, and Katie Schwab.

Laura Morrison + Beatrice Loft Schulz finissage @ Res, Oct 30 + 31

30 October 2015

Laura Morrison and Beatrice Loft Schulz‘s Bain Marie project is finishing it’s run at London’s Res. with an event on the evening of October 30, followed by a final showing on October 31.

Part of a broader research project on corporeality and affective labour under capitalism, the artists have set anchor in the gallery space, to “consider the instrumentalisation of vulnerability”.

In exploring the tension inherent in positing the body and the gallery as often contradictory spaces, the closing night begins with performances by the artists to be followed by a DJ set by Spacer Woman (aka Chooc Ly Tan).

See the Res. wesbite for details.**
