‘Is It Madness. Is It Beauty.’
ROTOR – Siobhan Davies Studios, South London Gallery
3-14 November 2010
Is It Madness. Is It Beauty was a work commissioned for the Siobhan Davies Studios that communicated ideas about the futility of human action. The artist responded to the repetitive actions of dancers in The Score, and conceived a performance piece that involved the continual filling and re-filling of a number of unfired ceramic bowls with water; however, as the bowls were unfired they collapsed, visually emphasising the human endeavour and desire to achieve.
