Performance Exchange - Joel Kyack: 'Don't go Chasing Waterfalls'

Performance Exchange

Joel Kyack: Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls

Sunday 11th July from 3 to 5pm
(durational performance, booking is not required)
Workplace | Reliance Wharf, N1 5ET London


We are pleased to take part in the inaugural edition of  Performance Exchange with a new work by Los Angles-based artist, Joel Kyack. Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls focuses on the fundamental element of water -  how humans control water, have historically controlled it to form the foundation of industrial production, and how, in turn, with the passing of time these industrial sites have become centres for contemporary cultural production shaping the spaces within which we experience art today; the Tate Modern, with its Turbine Hall, is perhaps the most obvious example of such a transformation in London. 

Through this work Kyack explores these transformations and fundamentally addresses the often overlooked foundational binary inherent to artistic production – the representation of something vs. actually being that something. One can make a painting or sculpture of a tree, or one can use an actual tree in the work. This performance will interrogate these two opposite modes of production by straddling and occupying both.

Now Representing Miko Veldkamp

Now Representing 
Miko Veldkamp

 
Workplace is pleased to announce the representation of New York based artist Miko Veldkamp. The gallery will present Veldkamp's first UK solo show in its East London space in 2022.

Veldkamp was born in Suriname and grew up in the Netherlands before relocating to the US in 2014. His work is a response to living across dispersed geographies, and the ways in which his identity has shifted in the process of navigating degrees of otherness. Veldkamp's richly complex scenes embody longing, but also the potential to recreate and invent moments pulled from the depths of our subconscious, while revealing the fluidity of identity as a construct.
