Wednesday 2 May, 7.00 - 8.30pm
As part of Any frame is a thrown voice performers from a variety of practices have been invited to revisit Ian White's performance work and film programming.
Artists Sharon Hayes and Evan Ifekoya presented new performances of IBIZA and Black Flags.
Sharon Hayes has been engaged in an art practice that uses multiple mediums - video, performance, and installation in an ongoing investigation into various intersections between history, politics and speech. Her work is concerned with developing new representational strategies that examine and interrogate the present political moment, not as a moment without historical foundation but as one that is always allegorical, a moment that reaches simultaneously backwards and forwards.
Hayes’ work has been shown at the New Museum, the Guggenheim Museum, MoMA PS1, Art in General, Artists Space, New York, amongst others. Her work was included in the 2010 Whitney Biennial, New York, the 2009 Istanbul Biennial, the Yokohama Triennial, Guangzhou Triennial (both 2008), and PERFORMA05. Her collaborative piece, 9 Scripts from a Nation at War, made with Andrea Geyer, Ashley Hunt, Katya Sander and David Thorne was shown in Documenta 12 in Kassel, Germany and subsequently at the Tate Modern in London and REDCAT in Los Angeles. Hayes is an Assistant Professor at the Cooper Union. She is represented by Tanya Leighton Gallery, Berlin.
Evan Ifekoya’s current work investigates the possibility of an erotic and poetic occupation using film, performative writing and sound, focused on co-authored, intimate forms of knowledge production and the radical potential of spectacle.
Ifekoya’s recent work has been presented at: Contemporary Arts Centre New Orleans as part of Prospect 4; Embassy Gallery, Edinburgh, New Art Exchange, Nottingham; Plymouth Arts Centre; Serpentine Galleries, London; Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridgeshire; (2017); Transmission Gallery, Glasgow; and Stevenson Gallery, Cape Town (2016). Recent performances have taken place at ICA, London and KW Institute, Berlin (2017) and Jerwood Space, London and Whitstable Biennial (2016). Ifekoya was an Art Foundation Fellow in Live Art, 2017. Forthcoming includes a newly commissioned performance in collaboration with Victoria Sin for Block Universe, and a solo exhibition at Gasworks opening July 2018.
