Rhubaba is delighted to present Figments (2020), a series of memory exchanges produced between Denys Blacker, Helen Collard and Sandra Johnston. Often working within the spheres of performance practice, throughout lockdown they have been exploring alternative ways of working, emphasised by the absence of bodies, space and physicality. Having worked on previous collaborations together, the lockdown period has brought with it a virtual intimacy, harbouring a space for creative exchange and experimentation. Substituting performance with various ways of making; including, but not limited to walking, drawing, listening and recording; they have been sharing figments of material with one another. Through the sharing of these memory extracts, a system of material exchange emerged; with each piece building on the previous one shared, in turn shaping the subsequent response. Through this process, small moments are captured in time and unconscious connections become apparent.
The figments of material will be shared online and an extract played during the Zoom session. This will be followed by a Q&A session with the artists.
