Points of Contact

About

For one night only Alicia Fidler and Lizzie Feather exhibit at Mori + Stein, exploring processes, systems, movement and constraint through new and existing works. Examining the points at which their practices conflate and overlap, Points of Contact stands as the result of new dialogues and narratives between both the artists and their works. Feather uses materials such as plaster, emulsion and fabric to make sculptural forms that sit somewhere between anthropomorphic structures and geological relics. Anxieties emerge through the distortion or implosion of apparent systems — her work is a response to controlled destruction, using the idea of solidifying movement to achieve a sense of stasis. Fidler explores physical breaking points within materials, methods of art making, and the body. Playing with the relationship between physical tension and functionality, the role of the work is defined by the approach of the viewer. Latent, the pieces stand as points of consideration; activated through the body, they become visceral. Lizzie Feather and Alicia Fidler were both born in Berkshire in 1990. Feather graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with BA (Hons) in fine art in 2013 where she was awarded the annual Sarah Beck Memorial Prize. Recent exhibitions have included Object Abuse at Spinach, London, and her solo show We Are All Made Of Chalk at Bloc Projects, Sheffield. In July she was invited to be artist in residence at KARST in Plymouth. Fidler completed her BA (Hons) at Chelsea School of Art, London, in 2012 where she was awarded the annual Roostein Hopkins Parade Ground Prize. Recent exhibitions include Fresh Air Sculpture at Quenington, Gloucestershire, and TOI in Headington, Oxford. She has recently completed a residency at Headington School, Oxfordshire.
