Study Day

During the afternoon each artist will talk about their work and working methods and they will show aspects of new work in progress; including works in sound, performance and film. The day will begin with a performance by Beatrice Dillon in the open studio, followed by a presentation by Wojciech Kosma in the reception area and ending with an immersive movement session in the gallery led by Florence Peake. There will be time for discussion and tea and coffee will be available throughout the event. This event is being recorded.

Beatrice Dillon is a producer, composer and musician who collaborates widely with a range of visual artists producing music and sound for film, performance and installation. Her recent releases Blues Dances, Face A/B and Studies for Samplers and Percussion (with Rupert Clervaux) were selected for FACT, Juno and Quietus’ Best of 2015. She has performed and DJ’d internationally at venues including Southbank, Barbican, Tate, ICA, Palais de Tokyo, Lisson, Arma Moscow, Center of Contemporary Art Geneva and MONA Tasmania amongst others. Beatrice presents a monthly show on London’s NTS. 

Wojciech Kosma explores multiple aspects of relationships and sociality, working within a performance framework and together with a number of close collaborators. The effects of this process are manifested both in the social realm and in artistic productions. Kosma’s collaborations with Dylan Aiello, Dwayne Browne, Sjoerd Dijk, Brian Doose, Gordon Douglas, Ligia Lewis, Sofia Lomba, Ewa Majewska, Irene Moray, Timothy Murray, Paulita Pappel, Llewellyn Reichman, Yunuen Rhi, Ingrid Sattes, Jessica Lauren Elizabeth Taylor and Judith Vrancken were presented at Interstate Projects in New York; Chisenhale Gallery, London; Schinkel Pavillon in Berlin; Galerie Kamm, Berlin; Human Resources, Los Angeles; Transmission, Glasgow; Outpost, Norwich; LEAP, Berlin; and Muzeum Sztuki, Łódź among others. In 2015, Kosma was the recipient of Scholarship for Visual Arts awarded by the Berlin Senate and resident artist at Triangle in New York.

Florence Peake’s practice encompasses visual art, dance and performance. Peake works with drawing, painting and sculptural materials combined with found, appropriated and fabricated objects placed in relationship to the moving body. Site and the placement of performance and audience, live and recorded text, as well as a well-developed sense of wit and humour, are key to her work. She has shown nationally and internationally, presenting work at the National Portrait Gallery, London; BALTIC, Gateshead; Hayward Gallery as part of Mirrorcity, London; David Roberts Art Foundation, London; Yorkshire Sculpture Park; Modern Art Oxford; Chapter Arts, Cardiff; the Harris Museum, Preston; and the Herbert Museum, Coventry.
