ballet [part one] was made in collaboration with Seamus Carey, it was exhibited at No Nation - Art Gallery and Tangential Unspace Lab in November 2019. This piece was an exploration of boundaries, an invitation to cross the threshold into an inner space, an attempt to connect with the audience in an intimate and authentic way. Utilizing sculpture and sound + lighting design, this work was made possible by two minds colliding, two makers collaborating to further their artistic practices to reach a plane impossible to navigate alone. The process of making this work was intuitive and guided by the building of a relationship between the collaborators. Conversation, both direct and tangential, was integral to the devising of this work. Ballet [part one] is the first in a series of performance installations.
