AboutLaura Wilson is an artist whose work lies in investigating the everyday. For Siobhan Davies Studios she presents an exhibition responding to the building and its history, along with two live performance pieces.
Performance art events:
19 January, 7pm and 8pm: Blind Building takes place in the tower block of the London College of Communication in Elephant and Castle, a few minutes walk from Siobhan Davies Studios. Viewers watch from street level a 15 minute choreographed performance of the raising and lowering of blinds within the building.
5 February, 7-8.30pm: Flaming Fuse at Siobhan Davies Studios. This performance piece involves the striking and extinguishing the contents of an entire box of matches in a darkened room. The sizzle of each match is amplified and the performer illuminated before discarding the match and starting again until all the matches have been used. After the performance, Laura Wilson will be in conversation with artist Jefford Horrigan from 7-8.30pm. Free entry but seats must be reserved by calling 020 7091 9650.
Laura Wilson presents a number of new works including: a film of Blind Building; Drawing on a Large Glass, a site-specific drawing with PVC tape and vinyl. And finally Quite a Stranger Aren't You, a duet of identical rotating heaters silently moving from one side to the other in unison, almost appearing to be dancing with each other.
