A ∩ B ∩ C (line). Herald St Gallery, London. 2013

"In A ∩ B ∩ C (Line), 2013 -read as ‘A intersection B intersection C’- the piece on view here, a group of performers pick up the Perspex shapes that line the wall, and arrange them into a composition in front of the audience, who are invited to sit in the bleacher-like stands facing the shapes."-GalleriesNow.net

I am a helicopter, camera, queen.

BMW Tate Live, Online & Tate Modern, London. 2012

"The opening shot of I am a helicopter, camera, queen created the impression of a fully occupied space. The 105 performers – selected through an open call for volunteers who self-identified as queer or feminist – stood in rows facing the camera, filling all the available space; or as Roysdon phrased it ‘building the space’. The camera itself was not permitted to enter the room and instead remained at the perimeter, looking in at the participants. From this vantage point the camera captured the movements of the performers, which were guided by a score of shapes, images and words marked out on the floor. Moving as one group, they created formations, including triangular shapes oriented diagonally across the room, or lines facing the left wall, then the right."-  Acatia Finbow (Tate.org.uk)

Lygia Clark

Canibalismo [Cannibalism],

PINTA Art Fair, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London. 2012

Commissioned by Alison Jacques Gallery, Lygia Clark's granddaughter led a group of performers to recreate a series of performative actions by the late artist. The three performances were presented as part of PINTA, The Latin American Art Fair on behalf of the Brazilian artist. 

In Canibalismo, the group of participants sit blindfolded around a body in a grey suit. The group reach out to a zip in the centre of the suit opening a pouch filled with fruit. As the group eats from the stomach pouch over a 40-minute period, the audience experiences the contrast of a grotesque visual with light-hearted conversation and the sensual feeding of another.

Baba antropofagica [Cannibalistic Slobber],

PINTA Art Fair, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London. 2012

Baba antropofagica, sees group of participants create a drawing of string over the form of a body. The participants pull varied colour threads from spools in their mouths down over the limbs. One of the original performances is the cover image of Whitechapel Gallery publication 'Participation: Documents of Contemporary Art' book, edited by Claire Bishop.

Corpo colectivo [The collective Body],

PINTA Art Fair, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London. 2012

In Corpo Coletivo, a group of participants are stitched to one another wearing colourful body suits. Moving as an individual entity, the collective tangle themselves into sculptural forms. In one of the performaces, the group was joined by the artist's friend and former collaborator, David Medalla.

Campus,

Mental Furniture Industry. Flat Time House, London. 2013

 

"Campus is a group performance, first initiated in 2011 involving performers that act out the familiar gestures of political protests along with phrases, such as "Exaggerate! Strengthen! Simplify!" adapted from the one-on-one instruction given to art students during a three dimensional sculpture class. As the instructor moves from student to student ideas about technique and observation merge with other acts that involve 'seeing' and 'doing'."- Flattimeho.org.uk
