With this exhibition, London based artist Shane Waltener is presenting new works resulting from on site research and exchanges with dancers at the Siobhan Davies Studios. Looking at the relationship between stepping ans stitching, the artist and dancers at the centre will use the building as a loom to weave on and create a site responsive installation looping from inside to outside the building.
Together with this piece, the artist will be showing ‘Stitching Score #1’, an animated installation using over 200 meters of deconstructed clothing strung together, material produced during interactive installation at the Palm Court at Alexandra Palace last year.
