Archipelago presents X by Lalu Delbracio during Peckham 24.
The artist creates X in collaboration with dancer Typhaine Delaupe, an immersive paper installation that transforms and evolves throughout its duration.
X develops Lalu’s ongoing interest in the possibility of reshaping histories and identities both in a personal and collective way. It could be the intersection of two worlds or the marking of a spot suggesting something will happen there. Throughout the exhibition the performers invites the public to meet at this spot at given times where they will be present activating and processing the space unveiling through different gestures all what is made of.
Lalu Delbracio is interested in performativity and the possibility to unlearn and unbuild our own stories. Her work is an attempt to peel back trying to get to a previous state of curiosity, exploration and ultimately openness similar to that of early childhood. In her practice she explores the physical, emotional and instinctual as valid routes to cut through major narratives and towards the creation of a new space for personal identity. It results in image mash-ups and site-specific paper installations that she physically tears apart in live actions, creating a space that allows for something new to emerge.
Exhibition supported by Fedrigoni Papers.
