The Complete Works
4pm, Saturday 7 September 2013
Glasgow Sculpture Studios Gallery
The Complete Works 2009, is described as a living sculpture. Here a retired dancer goes through all the choreographies they have ever performed, from memory, in attempted chronological order. Performed in the exhibition space, there is no stage. It is an act that mediates the dancer’s own history – both in the memory of the mind but also in the physical memory of the body – and as a result it highlights the physical limitations that are imposed on the body as one grows older. The performance at Glasgow Sculpture Studios will be performed by Ellen Van Schuylenburch, a retired dancer from the Michael Clark Company.
This performance is shown in association with Nina Beier’s exhibition Liquid Assets, on display at GSS Gallery from 13 July – 7 September 2013.
