FRIDAY 18 Jan - Objects you can do without: A Pavilion Forum
- Objects you can do without: A Pavilion forum
18 January, 6 7.30 pm
TV Studio, Roger Stevens Building, Willow Terrace, University of Leeds
The resultant feeling of walking among [Additionals] is pleasurably
unsettling, the activity and boundaries of physical, temporal, and
individual creation being prodded and tampered with: the echoes of an
expanded working group structure. Chris Fite-Wassilak, Frieze, no.152,
January - February, p.168.
This Pavilion forum marks the closure of Céline Condorelli's Additionals, an
exhibition of found and fabricated musical, sculptural and architectural
components, in Leeds. A series of presentations will unpack the exhibition's
conceptual process, based on Cornelius Cardew's score The Tiger's
Mind(1967), quasi-functional objects, drawn from Michelangelo Pistoletto's
Oggetti in Meno (1965-1966), and brutalist surroundings, located in the
Chamberlin Powell and Bonn designed Roger Stevens Building (1970). Penelope
Curtis, Adrian Rifkin and Marcel Swiboda will contribute.
Prior to the event, at 5pm, Pavilion will screen the film document of John
Tilbury's improvised performance of Cardew's The Tiger's Mind using
Condorelli's Additional Structure for Preparing a Piano. The forum will
consider the role played by objects, sounds and spaces in securing and
sustaining collaborative relationships.
