PRIVATE VIEW (with performances) 10.05.13 | 19.00h - 22.00h
BBQ SALON 24.04.13 | 18.00h - 22.00h
By now each of us are several looks at multiplicity of identities drawn from a series of sculptural objects and performative responses from a number of artistic personalities. How can one identity serve another? What is the reward of multiplying? Why do so many artists function as polymaths?
We live in an ordered Apollonian world Nietzsche tells us, to mask our inevitable fate. But every-so-often we dip into the orgiac energy of Dionysus to remind ourselves of why order is necessary and chaos should be contained. The merging of Apollonian and Dionysian drives in our mind produces different versions of ourselves; each of which attempt to become the dominant.
Embedded in an abstraction of forms are the findings of multiple eccentric actions and production processes, produced by Winter and Glint. In addition two times Turner Prize nominee Richard Wilson will give a performance using a guitar in the space at the private view. Maybe with light, maybe without.
Goldsmiths graduate and LUPA curator Kate Mahony will present an architectural conundrum, relating to a space within the gallery. Bruno Glint curator and performer Annabelle Stapleton-Crittenden will present a performance alongside herself.
A video work by Matt Calderwood will be screened at both our opening and closing events.
A book of Keef Winter's work published by Allotrope Press will also be launched on the opening night. This includes contributions from Rut Blees Luxemburg, Douglas Park, Hannah Newell and more.
On the 24th May there will be a BBQ on the terrace with informal presentations from invited guests in the gallery from 18.00h - 22.00h, this is under the title 'Multiplicities, Polymaths & Dilettantes' - more to be announced on facebook
