Reflections on Fortuna Private View –
Artists: Ben Bell, Edward Bullinger, Dan Brown, Annie Brundrit, Daniel Clegg, Nicholas Denney, Mary Littlefield, Rupert Mallin, Mandy Rogers, Helen Wells Dancers: AbbyPage, Xenoula Eleftheriades
A great atmosphere and element of risk bringing together artists and dancers who hadn’t worked with each other before. The dance piece ‘Marking Time’ choreographed by Abby Page and Xenoulagh Eleftheriades ignited the energy in this huge underground space. To find out more about them go to https://facebook.com.abs.xen/ or https://www.facebook.com/xenarts/ The black and white images are from the film installation, featuring dancers who performed live at the Private View.
Audience participation, after the performance was lively too.
Below are some images of my work in the show. I wanted to make pieces which would inhabit the space like some kind of subterranean life form, appearing at home in this huge, damp underground space.
If you missed the private view there is still time to see the show which is on until 22nd April, with two experimental drawing workshops happening on 7th and 12th April, 10am – 2pm, and a dance workshop on 11 April. See the above links to check out details for dance workshop.
More images from the exhibition.
Through most of my working life, I have been interested in creating work with other people – artists, non-artists, musicians, dancers and more recently writers. The cross fertilization of ideas and creative media can be a potent mix.
