Young Newcastle University graduate Faye Green performed her associative performance score and went on to win the Dazed/Converse Emerging Artist Award.

Influenced by Charcot’s synoptic tables of the stages of hysterical attack, her combination of voice and dance sees words find form through psychically charged performance. The carefully choreographed piece investigates interplay between discourses through embodied research into the performative operation of text.  Green’s performance runs at the Londonewcastle Gallery until the last performance at 3pm on 2 November 2013.

The panel comprised Sadie Coles,  gallerist; Matt Williams,  ICA curator; Paul Noble, Turner Prize-nominated artist; Miranda Sawyer, arts journalist; Michelle Cotton, firstsite curator; Kirsty Ogg, Whitechapel Gallery curator and Francesca Gavin, Dazed & Confused visual arts editor.
