Elephant X Griffin

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 1st 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 inhibit (the body) and inhabit (the space/material), forming an installation into which people will 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.
