Edge and Shore
- 26 September 2014 3-8pm
Edge and Shore is a new durational performance and installation work by visual artist Helen Carnac and dance artist Laïla Diallo.
Emerging from a dialogue between the two artists about making and process, the work offers an insight into their ideas around place, practice, making and moving.
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.
Audiences are welcome to view the work anytime between: 3pm-5pm and 6pm-8pm.
These performances are commissioned by Siobhan Davies Dance and supported with public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Christian Kerrigan: First to bloom, Last to leave - part 2
- 3 October — 14 December 2014
Private View: 2 Oct 6.30–8.30pm
Using live CCTV recordings from the past six months of the Linden tree growing outside Siobhan Davies Studios, Kerrigan reflects on the development of the tree’s lifecycle, from the sparse branches in winter to the dense, leafy foliage in the summer months.
Mixing the recordings with computer game software, Kerrigan creates interactive film footage for the viewer to explore. A single tree branch captured within London's busy environment initiates a story of light, pollution, microclimate, transport and migrating wildlife.
The footage sits alongside Kerrigan’s large-scale sculptures which play with processes shared by nature and technology and chart the progress of the seasons from spring through to autumn.
This exhibition is part of Human-Nature, a programme of exhibitions and events exploring the interdependent relationship between people and plants.
