Past Event


This event was on Saturday 28 March, 3pm

Whether working with collage, performance or sculpture, Russian artist Anna Parkina’s interest lies in the spaces between objects and forms. She is fascinated not by the details themselves, but in the dialogue that emerges between the details.

In The Dream of the Volunteer, she plays with light and shadow, weaving a performer’s body together with image and fabric. The conversation appears between the image – a projection of a woman dancing among trees and fabric – and the reality of a similar dancer in space. The two aspects intersect, entering into a fight of sorts, each trying to find independence from the other. As the distance between image and reality grows and fluctuates, the viewer struggles to understand what is tangible fabric and body, and what is shifting light.

With music by pianist Sophie Agnel.

The ticket price for this event includes exhibition entry.
