Clusterfuck is a term used to describe a particular kind of catch 22 in which multiple complicated problems mutually interfere with each other’s solution. Nomad’s latest project sets out to explore the relationship between public spaces and contemporary approaches to exhibition and performance. Four artists with diverging practices have been asked to collaborate on a project that embraces hybrid authorship, a relational mess for both artists and audience to navigate. Clusterfuck is a zone that asks to be inhabited, an interdeterminacy encouraging new readings and perceptions.
Stephen Cornford is a sculptor working with music, sound and noise. He studied at Slade School of Fine Art before completing his Masters in Time-Based Arts Practices at Dartington College of Arts. Cornford’s principal materials are musical instruments and audio technologies, which he treats with a disregard for their normal function in an effort to forget their iconography and focus on their physicality. http://www.scrawn.co.uk/works.html
Nathan Parker is a London based artist who graduated from an MFA at the Slade in 2002, working predominantly in video, installation, sculpture and set design. Parker’s work explores various archetypes and tropes found in fairy tales, Norse mythology, ritual, fetishism and contemporary music.
Tai Shani’s fantastical and dreamlike performances are produced with an economy of expression that nevertheless continually teeters on the brink of ecstatic vision. Public and private trauma becomes the precipitant for an unfettered practice depicting pseudo historical characters and senarios caught within a time travel spectacle.
Henry Stringer takes inspiration from the physicality of the material he uses to create large, site specific constructions that primarily endevour to encourage audience participation. Henry is currently studying his B.A degree at Central Saint Martins, London.
Lundahl & Seitl
My Voice Shall Now Come From the Other Side of the Room is a ten minute, one on one performance of choreographed movement and touch, which brings the visitor into gentle confrontation with their physical bodies and their own self-monitoring processes. The visitor is as much a performer as the performers themselves within this work, which represents a decisive shift in Lundahl & Seitl’s practice.
Nomad was established in 2006 to commission and develop new dialogues between artist, collaboration and exhibition in the public domain. Nomad continually strives to build support structures for artists to explore non-traditional working and presentation methods across all medias. Nomad’s goal is to draw on regions of cultural production and social discourse orientated towards increasing knowledge and experience for artists, collaborators and audiences alike.
