There is no there - Gabriella Mangano and Silvana Mangano
until 10 February 2019
Gabriella Mangano and Silvana Mangano’s collaborative video works explore the relationship of the body with material objects, space and time. In their recent video work: ‘There is no there’, they extend their concept of performance to a form of community engagement whereby fellow artists, friends and colleagues enact a series of movements and postures inspired by recent media coverage that wordlessly communicate degrees of urgency, anxiety, enquiry and stillness. ‘There is no there’, is exhibited alongside preparatory works that provide insights to the video’s development and this new direction in the artists’ practice.
