Work: The Collection

Summary

The Collection is a series of ambitious collaborations that look at the interfaces of contemporary art and dance, where these worlds intersect and how they might inform one another. At the heart of The Collection is a mutual curiosity for potential exchanges across both art forms, and an exploration of the connections and disconnections within them.

For nearly three weeks, performers and artists presented specially commissioned dance and artworks at Victoria Miro Gallery in North London and Siobhan Davies Studios in South London. The Collection subsequently evolved into a new collaboration with Ikon Gallery in Birmingham.

Analysis

'Victoria Miro and I were interested to show work in each others' spaces and to enjoy both the connections and disconnections between dance and visual art. Presenting work in different environments creates small instabilities which can help shift patterns of thinking.' (Siobhan Davies).
