Right Through You
— London
2017



 

Right Through You explores relationships in architecture, phenomenology and minimal art. Taking into consideration the gallery and building’s constraints and specificities, Miraj Ahmed, Nicolas K Feldmeyer and Richard Wentworth create minimalistic site-specific installations, to challenge the viewer’s experience of this gallery environment, and draw attention to characteristics usually left unnoticed.

The juxtaposition of horizontal and vertical planes creates negative spaces for the viewer to contemplate. These voids highlight elements that are typically hidden. The artists use everyday materials, to make ordinary spaces sublime, filling the emptiness with significance. By distorting the light and layering materials, the depth of the gallery becomes ambiguous.

DANCE ACT
by Semaphore Ballet Company
3 June 2017, 4pm-6pm

Semaphore Ballet Company presents the work Preoccupation focusing on the mind of a pathologically narcissistic individual by exploring the ego’s relationship with the “ego ideal”. The Company invites the audience to contemplate the mental disorder in which the sufferer experiences aggrandised perception of the self.

Inspired by the myth of Narcissus who falls in love with his own reflection, the work portrays the characterisation of the ego and indulgent movement. The choreography is playful and crafted to expose vanity through aesthetic satisfaction.

Guided by a student of psychoanalysis, the work has been created in accordance with psychoanalytic theory, specifically surrounding Freud’s 1914 Paper On Narcissism: An Introduction. The creative process involved the collaboration of Semaphore Ballet Company and dancers from the Royal Academy of Dance alongside artists and musicians allowing the theme to be deeply explored through many art forms.

Director: Maisie Alexandra Byers, Managers: Jessica Mulcahy and Annaliese Neubauer, Dancers: Bethany Swales, Hannah McMillan, Laura Radford, Belinda Roy, Natsuki Uemura, Sophie Roger, Charlotte Watts, Hailey Neufeld, Music composed by: ‘Daleh’ – Molly Byers, Make up design: Madeleine Florence Byers and Costume Artists: Gabriel Mansfield



POETRY PERFORMANCE
by Mischa Foster Poole
24 May 2017, 6.30pm - 7.30pm

Mischa Foster Poole‘s work skirts in and out of the borders of intelligibility and meaning. The performance created for this exhibition will assemble a soundscape in dialogue with Nicholas K Feldmeyer‘s installation, presenting gauzy speech-forms, distorted and layered, semantically winnowed, riddled, or enmeshed.
