Gesture, Trace and Performance stages a constellation of some of the most thought provoking contemporary works developed through artistic research, inquiring into collective notions of memory, time and space. The exhibition at the UCA, Herbert Read Gallery, in Canterbury, UK is organised around three thematics: disappearance, masks, and becoming. ‘Disappearance’ focuses on the ephemerality of recorded memory via sound or image; ‘masks' expresses a presence that is invisible yet substantive, thinkable through touch; and ‘becoming' concerns the mediation between bodily drawings and the cohabitation in holding a certain space through limited time. ‘Gesture, Trace and Performance’ presents multidisciplinary art works by Leah Fusco, Robert Luzar, Wiebke Leister, Anastasios Logothetis, Lawrence Abu Hamdan and Nikolaus Gansterer in collaboration with Erin Manning. Curated by Azadeh Fatehrad.
