Entanglement Research Group (RCA)

The Research Group: Entanglement seeks to establish a kind of ‘lab’, a weekly experimental site foregrounding one’s artphilosophyvoicetonguequantumphysicswork through the strange visceral economies of what constitutes an ‘is’ (or even the is):

We will commence the Entanglement in the New Year 2018 with Foucault’s The Courage of Truth read with and against Bataille’s Meditations and Haraway’s Tentacular Thinking Entanglement enables (or will try to enable) a new form of contemporary art, philosophy/erotic praxis, poetics and the logics of sense we call ‘inhabited philosophy’. All work(s) will be discussed / voiced / heard / exchanged bearing in mind a few interlocutors: Friedrich Nietzsche, Isabelle Stengers, Karen Barad, Benoit Mandelbrot, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Søren Kierkegaard, Kathy Acker, Euripides, Martin Heidegger, Walter Benjamin, Michel Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari, J-F Lyotard, RAW, Wittgenstein, Angela Davis.

Research Tutor: Johnny Golding with Aura Satz, Nigel Rolfe, Sarah Jones and Margarita Gluzberg. Honorary Post-docs: Alberto Condotta, Fani Cettl, Jakub Ceglarz and Mattia Paganelli.

    The Tetley, What We Talk About When We Talk About Work, ‘Movement and Dance’

    The forthcoming event in the What We Talk About ... series of public discussions will explore movement and dance as both a mode of performance and a method of working curatorially. Beyond a concern withcurating dance practices in a gallery context, invited speakers will consider the “choreography” of exhibitions as a space and time throughout which artworks exhort and direct an audience’s movement.Speakers include Director of The Tetley Bryony Bond, Curator at Extra City Antwerp Michiel Vandevelde and artists Maeve Rendle and Nicola Singh. The public discussion will end with the preview of a new performance piece by Maeve Rendle unfolding throughout the gallery building.
