Visual artist Helen Carnac and dance artist Laïla Diallo present a new work in process: Edge and Shore, exploring the edges and boundaries of making and working, performance and installation.
Working in architecturally distinct spaces the artists investigate place together and in close proximity to each other, considering the commonalities and tensions between seemingly disparate forms of creative practice.
Edge and Shore offers an insight into the different states that a work might take in a process of live making, inviting the audience to become part of the dialogue to inform the work as it develops.
This work is a development of Side by Side (2012), a six week residency initiated by Siobhan Davies Dance where the two artists were invited to investigate the act and process of cross-disciplinary making.
Edge and Shore is commissioned by Siobhan Davies Dance and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Developed with support from Battersea Arts Centre, Bristol City Council, Bristol Old Vic Ferment, Quay2C and Stroud Valleys Artspace.
