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.

Ψ (Psi) @ Fokidos, Nov 16 – Dec 21

16 November 2015

The Ψ (Psi) group project launches in Fokidos this week, running in the Athens space from November 16 to December 21.

The project, conceived in December of 2014 in the Dutch city of Maastricht (and “under the shade of Sol LeWitt’s Wall drawing #801: Spiral”), will finally materialise in the Greek city under the curatorial direction of Pádraic E. Moore and Sofia Stevi.

The project, which is primarily concerned with “the transfer of thoughts from one person’s mind to another”, features the works of seven artists including Sophia Al Maria and Quinn Latimer.

The artists are asked to provide in writing an idea or image that possessed some sort of personal significance, and these ideas are then translated into “gouache paintings” by artist Navine G. Khan-Dossos directly on the walls of the space.
