Crossing Borders 2013

Crossing Borders is a series of talks curated by Frank Bock that invites UK and international practitioners whose work understands movement and embodiment through a variety of different forms. Art practice, neuroscience, somatics and curation underpin the many contexts where such explorations take place.

Curator Ali MacGilp and artist William Hunt will discuss the relationship between the body, sculpture, choreography and performance art, taking Hunt’s practice as a point of departure.

The talk will be preceeded by a short performance by artist Adrian Lee. Please pay close attention for your safety and comfort.
William Hunt puts his body in extreme situations. Often uncomfortable to watch, his works can be absurd and humorous or deeply painful and tragic. Romantic and bathetic by turn, he takes on the forces of gravity, making the human body seem suddenly very frail. The obstacles he constructs for the trial by fire for himself and his collaborators are sculptures configured from domestic and industrial objects. He is presenting A Mobile - Paranalia for five dancers; an exercise in suspension, co-operation and obstruction at Siobhan Davies Studios on 29 November as part of Fort-Da.

Dr Ali MacGilp is an independent curator, writer and art historian. Working within a range of disciplines, she is particularly interested in film, video, performance and installation practices and working with archive materials. She has curated exhibitions at a variety of venues across London and abroad, including in Dubai, Hamburg, Amsterdam and Kabul. She is the co-founder and editor of the website Artvehicle.com and contributes to a variety of publications. She is one half of curatorial collective norn and teaches at Richmond University and the University of Reading. She has also curated Fort-Da at Siobhan Davies Studios this autumn.
