CERITH WYN EVANS : WALK AND TALK
Apr 29, 2012 2:00pm
Curator David Rhodes gives a tour and discussion around Cerith Wyn Evans' exhibition.
Jan 30 - Mar 13, 2016
Farrer's work opens up questions around the spectator’s construction of time/space relations and activates the live context of watching.
Shot at the De La Warr Pavilion’s auditorium, the principle sequence is based on mesmerizing and dream-like scene, The Kingdom of the Shades, from the French choreographer Marius Petipa’s La Bayadère, first performed in 1877. The long and slow repeated-arabesque sequence involves the entire corps de ballet, dancing one by one, in formal articulation across the stage in perfect accumulated unison. The orientation grids of the sequence are revisited in Farrer’s work; the mast ranks of the corps replicated in the multiple exposure of a single performer’s gesture, repeated and looped through the camera and projector. The ‘work’ interrogates an accepted cinematic experience, giving it a new perspective and engaging the speculation of the audience
TONICO LEMOS AUAD
Jan 30 - Apr 10, 2016
The London-based Brazilian artist, Tonico Lemos Auad (b.1968), makes sculptures that act as tools for processing thoughts. Often responding specifically in relation to the site and its people, Auad inspects ideas around act of faith, mending and repairing, resistance and endeavour to overcome adversity.
In response to the De La Warr Pavilion’s proximity to the natural elements and the town’s history as a seaside resort and its relationship to mental health and well-being, the exhibition at the De La Warr Pavilion will focus on the activity of gardening and its psychological impact and therapeutic properties.
