SAVORR XII FEATURED PROJECT: DAVE CHARLESWORTH & BEN JUDD PRESENT: 'ENSEMBLE'
& OPEN SUBMISSION EXHIBITION
Opening Event: Friday 21 November 2014, 6-9pm
Dates: Saturday 22 - Friday 28 November 2014, 12-5pm
The Undercroft, Norwich, Norfolk, NR21NH
The Open Submission show will include artworks by Carl Rowe, Henry Driver & Rebecca Liles, Henry Jackson Newcomb, Juan-Jose Guerra-Valiente, Lizzie Feather, Marco Giordano, Michael Bussell and Olivia Forster & Alisa Besirevic.
Selected for the Featured Artist Project, Goldsmiths graduates, Ben Judd and Dave Charlesworth (Director of South Kiosk gallery, London), will be creating a special reconstruction of 'Ensemble'.
The exhibition traces an historical arc of six decades of film and video produced by specific cultural practitioners in an installation originally conceived and choreographed in 2013 by the artists for Backlit, Nottingham, and later toured to The Swedenborg Society, London.
'Ensemble' investigates the use of movement and dance within the production of contemporary art, examining the process through video, documentation and live work. 'Ensemble' includes works by Turner Prize winners Gillian Wearing, and Mark Leckey, influential experimental film-maker Maya Deren, contemporary artist Lucy Clout, 1930s musical choreographer and filmmaker Busby Berkeley, as well as Sarah Baker, George Gurdjieff, Yvonne Rainer, Jim Shaw, Jonathan Trayner, Becca Voelcker, and Richard Whitby.
SAVORR is an arts platform based in Norwich with a unique events programme.
At each event a featured artist or collective is shown alongside an open submission show.
