Also tonight you can catch Andy Parker and Kate Lucy, Andy is a present member of ur:and Kate a pervious member.

‘BEING LUCY PARKER’

The theme that connects them in this project is an ongoing quest to capture a feeling of what they define as ‘human-ness’ within their art work; a notion of the person featured whether it is within a figurative portrait of an actual person or the impression left behind by someone’s presence or actions.

Sandra Bouguerch to perform ‘Collision’ at Purple

Performance title:- COLLISION

Live performance duration is instinctive.

Sandra Bouguerch is an interdisciplinary artist exploring her ongoing enquiry into the Notion of Self. Her practice incorporates an array of media such as installation, photography, sound, performance, video and text through which she creates atmospheres containing vulnerability and uncertainty.

 

The basis of my practice is my individual experience of life, and, as such, I am often the central subject. This has been recently amplified through performance highlighting the many commonalities, both physical and psychological that inform the human condition. Her aim is to suggest a state of affairs that carries the body to another form of conscience, reflecting an unstable realism that is often uncontainable, encompassing unpredictable circumstances.

Guest Artist Sandra Bouguerch Performing at White

Sandra Bouguerch is an interdisciplinary artist exploring her ongoing enquiry into the Notion of Self. Her practice incorporates an array of media such as installation, photography, sound, performance, video and text through which she creates atmospheres for the viewers to experience.

After gaining a first class degree in Fine Art in 2012 Sandra was chosen to be included in three open submission exhibitions, which were the Neo:artprize, Neo:printprize and 53 Degrees North. Sandra has been selected by Hive Projects.org in their forthcoming 2012 Graduates’ show entitled ‘3 Degrees North’. She was also part of the Fringe and a member of ‘Noimageavailable’ group at the Liverpool Biennial 2012 and is a member of the Northwest art collective NEO:ARTISTS.

The basis of my practice is my individual experience of life, and, as such, I am often the central subject. This has been recently amplified through my life model role to highlight the many sharing commonalities, both physical and psychological that inform the human condition. In the life drawing environment I developed a heightened sense of surroundings, others, my body and myself and I utilise the feelings of tension and awareness in relation to the notion of self, expressing them using multi media and Installation.

The life-drawing environment reflects life in general and the many temporal experiences of tension and awareness within one’s own life; some being ephemeral whilst others are of a longer duration.

Whilst modelling I feel a transfer of force and energy between myself the perceived passive model, and the active observing artist. I record and communicate this performance aspect in numerous ways to create tension or awareness. Through my own experiences of life modelling I aim to elicit memories of physical pain, exposure and perceived vulnerability reflecting back to the spectator.
