WHY MAKE IT SIMPLE, WHEN YOU CAN MAKE IT COMPLEX?
Free Entry / 8-10pm
This evening of experimental actions and installations has arisen from a month long collaboration between a group of students from MA Art and Science at Central Saint Martins, UAL, and recent MA graduates from Goldsmiths and UCA Farnham.
The group came together as performers in Robert Whitman's new commission, Side Effects, produced as part of Arts Catalyst's recent season 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering Revisited 1966/2016.
In collaboration with The Performance Studio, Arts Catalyst has since hosted weekly workshops for the group to develop a practical and historical perspective on performance practice and transdisciplinary working. The resulting performative installation involves individual works by artists Monika Dorniak, Verena Hermann, Virginie Serneels, Mary Simmons and Nicolas Strappini, collectively mediated by the group.
This programme is supported by Arts Council England, Cockayne – Grants for the Arts, The London Community Foundation, PACE, Afterall, Central Saint Martins, UAL, King’s Cross and Goldsmiths, University of London, University of Westminster, London: The Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) with the Institute for Modern and Contemporary Culture (IMCC) and The Performance Studio.
