EXHIBITION/

M.Lohrum X Calvin Richardson - Open Form


Dates/
10:00-18:00 Fri 24 - Sun 26 May 2024
Location/
Proposition, 100 Chalk Farm Rd, London NW1 8EH

Flux Projects is thrilled to present Open Form, an exhibition of collaborative pictures by visual artist M.Lohrum and dancer and choreographer Calvin Richardson exploring the intersection between dance and performative drawing.

These works are the culmination of months of preparation and research by these two artists, including time spent together in a studio developing a new way of working, somewhere within the space between mark-making and dance. The paintings are themselves fragments of an enormous area of canvas on which these artists at once both painted and performed, a process which was filmed by director and cinematographer, Ray Moody.

The short film captures the two artists exploring the potential of their bodily gestures as well as the resulting marks in a kind of ‘open form’. The piece investigates perception and the limitations of the body, as well as understanding dance as a form of corporal expression without the need to necessarily create ‘beautiful’ shapes, but rather explore the possibilities of movement.

At the same time, drawing here is used as a way to record a trace of these movements, without pretending to represent a pre-defined ‘figure’. The film is accompanied by the song Aeolus, Keeper of the Winds, composed and performed by Quinta. Also exhibited in the gallery are photographs taken by Merrick d’Arcy-Irvine recording M.Lohrum and Calvin Richardson’s collaborative process.




EXHIBITION/

Anna-Lena Krause, Isabelle Wenzel & Will Pegna - Choreographies Pt.4

Dates/
Fri 19 Apr - Mon 15 Jul 2024
Location/
BLOKspace Leyton, 258 Church Rd, London E10 7JQ

Flux Projects is proud to present Choreographies Pt.4, an exhibition of artworks by Anna-Lena KrauseIsabelle Wenzel & Will Pegna, exhibited at BLOKspace Leyton.

Taking the central concept of the body and movement, this exhibition, the fourth in a series, showcases artworks in video, sculpture and photography, depicting bodies, whether anatomical or metaphysical, especially in motion.

The artworks are exhibited in the space in dialogue with an installation by research-based studio ANOTHERFORM, composed of a large architectural insertion taking its tectonic language from the body and industrial systems: structure, skin and energy.

Bodies can be perceived as portals between inner and outer experiences, and choreography transcends this apparent duality, expressing both our physical and psychical selves. This exhibition investigates the significance of material bodies and the potential of movement and dance through different media.




EXHIBITION/

London Art Fair 2024

Dates/
Wed 17 - Sun 21 Jan 2024
Location/
Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street, London, N1 0QH

Flux Projects is thrilled to be exhibiting at the 2024 London Art Fair (stand M3). Featuring a selection of photographic works by Anna-Lena Krause, Anouk Jouanne, Ben Cullen Williams, Genevieve Reeves, Isabelle Wenzel and Merrick d'Arcy-Irvine, Photographs of Movement will showcase photography exploring and evoking movement. Reflecting Flux Projects’ cross-disciplinary philosophy and rooting in dance, these artists work fluidly across a range of media and disciplines, particularly movement-based performance. Several, such as Anouk Jouanne, Genevieve Reeves and Isabelle Wenzel, are themselves trained dancers or acrobats working with photography, whilst others, such as Anna-Lena Krause, either integrate performance in their photography, as well as video and performance art or, such as in the case of Ben Cullen Williams and Merrick d'Arcy-Irvine, collaborate frequently with dance artists and choreographers, be it in the photographic or virtual recording of movement or the design of performative spaces for dance. Whether working with digital or analog methods, with or without cameras, such as working gesturally with light-sensitive materials, these artists share a fascination with movement, particularly as expressed through the human body.
