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.
