Curated by Ben Harman, SOUTH OF NO NORTH is an exhibition of new and existing works which reflect varying approaches to art as performance, or performance as art.

About

Contemporary works by Scotland-based artists, Ruth Barker, Alan Currall, Romany Dear and Anthony Schrag, who each use their own bodies in their work, are exhibited alongside early 20th century photographs by Fred Daniels, depicting the pioneering choreography of Margaret Morris, founder of the eponymous Margaret Morris Movement. Against the backdrop of these photographic images of movement, the exhibition explores some current approaches to the use of the human body within performance-based artistic practice. It draws attention to the relationship between the world of dance and the world or visual art, and asks whether documentation can provide an authentic experience of a work.
