one less than the power of two2017, Holden Gallery, Manchester UK – performers Katie Jack and Willow Rowlands

 

Alexandria performance 2016 Resodanze, Alexandria, Egypt
A team of artists will collaborate and engage in a durational performance by spontaneously reacting to each other’s actions without any verbal communication. The artists of various specialisms will respond to each other’s actions individually and as a collective. The primary material used during the performance will be concrete and engine oil.
Emotions, moods and feelings are a silent language we explore within us and others, evoking and receiving signals continuously. The emotions investigated during the performance are those often hidden from strangers, the ones we reject or seek to understand within ourself and others.
The concept of the materials are fixed to the emotional state one seeks to integrate with the raw and artificial aesthetics of concrete and the beauty and reflective property of used engine oil. While the sculptor evokes emotions during the process of the work, the final piece remains uninhabited, allowing constant empathy with the viewer.
