Constructing Spaces – new live art in Tooting – presenting performance works fromâ€¦
Sunday 18 March
5pm – 7pm
Over the last few weeks, six artists have participated in a process of creative exchange to develop a set of live art pieces, working with the physical spaces and context of Construction Gallery in Tooting. Join us for a special showing event on Sunday 18 March from 5pm.
Cradeaux’s practice encompasses live performance, moving image, experimental theatre, acting, writing and sculpture. He is currently taking an MA at Royal College of Art and previously trained at Strasberg Institute in New York and Chelsea College of Art in London.
Heather Jones makes video and performance work and is concerned largely with cultural norms and behaviour, looking at how these are manifest in specific spaces and how we experience them as individuals and collectively.
Eldi Dundee’s current artistic concerns include inhabiting a female form, feminism/anti-feminism, beauty, violence, carnality and transcendence. Her practice consists of painting, photography, assemblage, performance, installation, writing, drawing and sculpture.
Rachel Gomme works in performance and installation, focusing on time and process as experienced in the body of both performer and viewer. She is interested in the immediate moment of performance, and to what extent it is possible to create a shared space of experience between performer and viewer.
Joe Stevens is an artist who is concerned with the grid as a methodology for artistic production. He uses the grid to provide structure to his life and art and to provide freedom from sensory overload.
Allan Taylor’s work ranges from one-to-one performances and performance lectures to durational performance. Using themes of repetition and ridiculousness, he asks us to look again at concepts that are perhaps taken for granted in the modern age, such as success, love and the Western ideal of beauty.
