Using homemade giant brushes and water as a medium, calligraphers practice their writing in the parks in Beijing. Inspired from this, Invisible Drawings: GREY AREA is part performance, part graffiti, and part social experiment. This investigation of environment, painting and dance has led to workshops and collaborations that will be documented here and at https://vimeo.com/user7139546
Residency, Performances and Workshop at L'atelier Kunst Spiel Raum as part of Month of Performance
Natalie Adams (UK) Christine Cheung (CAN) Arianna Rodeghiero (IT) and WOOGURU (KR)Videographer: Florian Klein (DE) 24 April – 05 May 2013
During our residency at L’Atelier we explored, together with dance collaborators Arianna Rodeghiero (IT) and WOOGURU (KR), the relationships within body, gesture, sound and visual production.
Over the course of ten days, we employed elementary materials such as industrial iron plates, rope, salt, chalk and charcoal, and used the gallery space as pictorial surfaces through drawing and dance. Here
patterns begin to emerge in terms of sound, observation, echo and
erasure as well as gestural relationships. Through large-scale
artworks, video and sound installation, fragments of performative
gestures and live actions, we improvised mark-making and body movement.
The public was invited to observe past and on-going performances; the
realms of drawing and dancing became blurred.
