SOUTH OF NO NORTH: Approaches to Art and Performance

 

 

Curated by Ben Harman, Director, Stills: Centre for Photography, Edinburgh.

Siobhan Davies Dance invite you to the private view of SOUTH OF NO NORTH, an exhibition of new and existing works which reflect varying approaches to art as performance, or performance as art.

 

Contemporary works by Scotland-based artists, Ruth Barker, Alan Currall, Romany Dear and Anthony Schrag, who each use their own bodies in their work, are exhibited alongside early 20th century photographs by Fred Daniels, depicting the pioneering choreography of Margaret Morris, founder of the eponymous Margaret Morris Movement. Against the backdrop of these photographic images of movement, the exhibition explores some current approaches to the use of the human body within performance-based artistic practice.
