Justyna Scheuring Welcome Home 2010 The Basement, Brighton Photo by Jezz Bowden
5 performance artists (Roddy Hunter, Anna Kalwajtys, Sabina Sallis, Justyna Scheuring, Kate Stobbart) have been invited to present new works relating to the idea of observation as both a continual, non-conclusive process of learning that happens in the present, and an instantaneous judgemental awareness which leads to action. Is a performance perceived by spectators or by observers? If by observers then what new expectations and responsibilities does this entail? And so, if all present are observers, what does it mean to be an observer? Bringing their own methodologies and philosophy to these questions the artists will use a variety of styles and mediums to show their observations within the context of the event, space, time and themselves.
