This project brings together performance artist Tom Estes and sculptor Ben Woodeson in an experimental collaboration; neither knowing exactly what will happen and ultimately what or who will survive. The H&SV collaboration is an evolving experiment documented by visitors to the exhibition; performance art interacting with fragile and ephemeral sculptures, a world where every action has consequences both known and unknown.
Coinciding with South London's 'Last Fridays' events on 26th October, the opening of Health & Safety Violation features Tom Estes performing seemingly inconsequential actions within the deliberately dangerous and fragile environment outlined by Ben Woodeson's Health & Safety Violation sculptures. 'Every action has an equal an opposite reaction' has never been truer. Tom Estes' actions contribute to a balanced equilibrium. A symbiotic relationship exists between sculpture and performance; inbuilt entropy where every action or inaction has potentially catastrophic consequences. Documentation of the evenings actions is performed by visitors to the exhibition using a communal camera; selected images will be displayed for the duration of the exhibition.
Project by invitation of Bella Easton and Iavor Lubomirov. Curated by the artists. Text by the artists.
