R Space Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of work by International artist, jeweller and choreographer Sarah Warsop. The exhibition will feature handcrafted jewellery, drawings and an installation of her atmospheric 2009 film Lying in Wait with collaborator Idris Khan.
Each piece of her jewellery is designed directly from a sliver of movement she has choreographed and performed. Mapping the chosen movement using a dynamic drawing
process, the essence of the movement is captured onto the page. From these drawings Sarah works directly into precious metals to maintain a sense of the original rhythms, direction, speed and flow within the final object.The pieces are then returned to the body as wearable jewellery.
Talks & Workshops:
Workshop: Thursday 10 April 2014, 10.30am 4.30pm
When we make movement where do we start? If dance is just the beginning of a process, where can it take us next?
Using the making of her film Lying in Wait (2009)* as a starting point, Sarah will show how simple words and text can be the springboard to create a piece of dance, a series of drawings and a collection of jewellery objects. During the workshop we will look at the motivation for moving and the physicality in mark making, and how perhaps we can see and interpret these marks.
If you are a professional dance maker/dancer, a maker of objects or simply wish to explore the process you are very welcome. Max 10 participants. Registration essential. Cost: £10.
Artist Talk: Saturday 15 April 2014, 3 - 4pm
* Lying in Wait (2009) in collaboration with Idris Khan
