Exodysis I - Performance

 Performance with tyroneisaacstuart, sculptural installation by Abel Shah
Nov 2021. Live Performance, 90 minutes
The Swiss Church, London. Supported by Camden Giving.

Exodysis I is an open-ended sculptural installation created by Abel Shah for their residency at The Swiss Church. The work 'invites others to engage, leave traces and create memories within the installation.

'The body of work has developed alongside ongoing dialogues with fellow practitioners and collaborators by thinking about how meaning and relationships are built through language and exploring alternative ways of communicating. By using materials which make up the cocoons of our everyday environments and recent histories, the sculptures start to act as symbols of the layeredness of our own skins and experiences.' Abel Shah


As part of Exodysis I, Abel Shah invited artists Sarah White and tyroneisaacstuart to embark on a conversation through movement during a 90min live performance with and amongst the sculpture installation. The installation was left imbedded with the marks and traces of the performance for the remaining duration of the exhibition.
