A New Body of Work 2016


A New Body of Work at Tate Exchange

This collaborative work-in-progress performance and installation was the result of an 18-month exchange between Intoart and Corali Dance Company as part of the Tate Exchange programme.

Bethan Kendrick performed a new movement score immersed in large scale site specific drawings by Clifton Wright, bringing together each artist’s unique approaches to drawing and shared interest in the figure, architecture and abstraction, ‘there is a connection between the figure and architecture.’ Clifton Wright.

At the centre of the work presented by Paul Davidson and Ntiense Eno Amooquaye is a poem, mixing repeated choruses written by Davidson and verses written by Amooquaye. Light projections by Amooquaye and her live reading of the poem accompanied a performance by Davidson who has also referenced the ‘Mind and Movement’ resource developed by Studio Wayne McGregor. Together these diverse elements combined to explore themes of flight and metamorphosis.
