Elephant x Griffin presents…(De)Figured

By Nathaniel Rackowe and Angela Woodhouse
With dancers Martina Conti and Alice Labant

At WestWorks, White City Place, 201 Wood Ln, White City, London W12 7TU

Public event: 6 – 8.30pm, Friday 1 June
Performance: 7pm

Following their first collaborative project, (Un)touched, sculptor Nathaniel Rackowe and choreographer Angela Woodhouse will work together over a period of one week to develop a new performative installation work, to be presented to the public for the first time on Friday 1 June at WestWorks, White City Place.

The artists begin their creative process thinking about the relationship between the body and urban street materials, often the stuff of street furniture (fluorescent light, glass, metal), as a prompt for experimental actions and images. The purpose is to both inhibit (the body) and inhabit (the space/material), forming an installation into which people enter. The space will shift in light in an arbitrary way, objects will be malleable and straying, the body acting as carrier and concealer; a faltering landscape of bodies and materials.

Come along and see the performance and the artists’ new work. The public event is free and open to all.

Friday 1 June

6pm: Arrival drinks, provided by Fuel @ Elephant West (Cash bar)

7pm: Performance

7.15 – 8.30pm: Audience free to walk around the sculpture left in the space
