Nicola Canavan: Untangling

Saturday 04 December 2010, 23:00

Arnolfini / Free (Limited Capacity)
An intimate two hour, durational performance for small audiences. In the performance space, the artist lies on her back, naked, covered almost entirely with soil. Piercings are used to connect her to the space. Over the two hours of the performance, the light gradually changes, becoming darker. Untangling is an exploration of death, loneliness and desire, an insight into the absent body and mind routine of sleeping alone. This is a contemplative piece in which the inherent contradiction between the physical demands Canavan places upon her body are matched by stillness and the slow passage of time.
