Body as Archive
Slade Research Centre, 16 Woburn Square, Bloomsbury London.
20th April 2018
Body as Archive was an event centered around gesture, which included a film screening followed by 3 hours of short and durational live performances, presented across 5 rooms within the Slade Research Centre. The event brought together works across film and live performance which, from a variety of different perspectives, consider how gesture as a physical act can reproduce and potentially interrupt embodied structures of power, as well as drawing attention to a collective capacity to experience and interact with the world non verbally.
Featuring artists: Kimberley Beach, Dominic Dispirito, Rowland Hill, Laura Hindmarsh, Gabriella Hirst, Jayne Parker, Sondra Perry, Joanna Pester, Martha Rosler and many more.
