Siobhan Davies Studios, 85 St George’s Road, London SE1 6ER
Through to 24 March 2013
Early 2013 Siobhan Davies Dance presents an exhibition of new work by artist Lilah Fowler, who will explore the relationship between visual artwork and space. Fowler is creating work, which directly responds to the award-winning architecture of the venue, Siobhan Davies Studios.
She is interested in the placement of artworks within a space and the way the audience navigate around them.
‘After spending time in the Siobhan Davies Studios space, I became particularly aware of my movement and presence within the building, this being in terms of my relation to the architecture and objects. […] Rather than creating a choreographic pattern of objects in space I am taking a closer look at the architectural design of the building to echo and accentuate this by working intentionally with its designed surfaces.’
An introductory podcast by Fowler about the works on display is available through MP3 players at the Studios and at www.siobhandavies.com/lilahfowler
