Café Curio Performance: New Works at Camden Arts Centre on Wednesday 30 January 2013

Cafe Curio Performance: New Works at Camden Arts Centre
Ruth Proctor, Laura Wilson, Marcus Orlandi
Wednesday 30 January, 7.00 - 8.30pm
An evening of performance and film works by young artists, selected to accompany the exhibition, working with the ideas of expanded cinema relating to light, space, film and performance:

Ruth Proctor: Empty Ground
In Empty Ground Ruth Proctor investigates the use of language as code and it’s relationship to the visual.  Using semaphore flags usually associated with traditions of the sea and for conveying information at a distance, the work describes a fragmented conversation between participants through physical movement and repetition in which meaning and image blur; action unravels in front of the audience as sentences translated via subtitling as if a foreign language film or a slowly moving track of a karaoke machine.

Laura Wilson
Wilson presents a new performance developing ideas surrounding the realtionships between the pysical possibilities of light, film and space transforming the gallery space simultaneously into both projector and screen.

Marcus Orlandi
Orlandi's new work is a theatrical meditation on temporality of film, the futility of preservation and a celebration of the absurdity of everyday existence. At once a performance work and film piece, Orlandi's work directly addresses the conections between screen and physical space.
