duel/duetElle van Uden
3 April - 18 April 2019
Opening Night Tuesday 2 April 2019, 5-8PM
'duel/duet' interrogates the relationship between the vertical and the climbing body to explore alternate ways of seeing and understanding verticality. This is informed by the artist's experience as a climber, which through years of training has produced an embodied knowledge of movement on the vertical. Whilst verticality in the gallery is typically distal, flat and sanitised, there is potential to extend this plane and its operation into an embodied and proximal zone - a liminal space that can produce speculative, abstract and diagrammatic ways of seeing and sensing.
