About

A solo show by Paul Hurley

Thursday 8th March : Preview: 7pm till late with bar + food + music
Peer Critique: Saturday 10th, 2 ' 3pm
Exhibition continues: Friday 9th ' Sunday 11th, 12 ' 6pm

With a background that crosses experimental performance and fine art, Paul Hurley's recent practice has consisted almost exclusively of live work, much of which involves explorations of ritualised action, endurance and abjection. It teeters past the limits of the mundane self, approaching vulnerability and actuating affect. It evolves affectivity and joy - as in the capacity for being affected to the point of pain or extreme pleasure - which comes to the same.

Interested in using the body and everyday materials to create visual images that transcend our usual physical and functional orientation, Hurley makes meaningful secular spiritual rituals, seriously, creatively and with warm humour.

For 'Overgave (surrender)' (the second word a translation of the first, from Dutch), Hurley creates new performances to be encountered live, through documentation and as trace.
