Exhibitions

Beyond the Line is an international, interdisciplinary collaboration involving artist-writer Emma Cocker, artist Nikolaus Gansterer (Vienna) and choreographer Mariella Greil (Vienna), for exploring the points of slippage as the practices of drawing, dance and writing enter into dialogue, overlap and collide. Cocker, Gansterer and Greil will inhabit the Bonington Gallery as an experimental 'method laboratory' for staging an encounter between choreography, drawing and writing; between body, mark and text.

  • From: Monday 14 April 2014, 12 am
  • To: Thursday 17 April 2014, 12 am
  • Location: Bonington Gallery, Bonington building, Nottingham Trent University, City Campus, Shakespeare Street, Nottingham, NG1 5LS

Event details

Beyond the Line is an international, interdisciplinary collaboration involving artist-writer Emma Cocker, artist Nikolaus Gansterer (Vienna) and choreographer Mariella Greil (Vienna), for exploring the points of slippage as the practices of drawing, dance and writing enter into dialogue, overlap and collide. Cocker, Gansterer and Greil will inhabit the Bonington Gallery as an experimental 'method laboratory' for staging an encounter between choreography, drawing and writing; between body, mark and text.

Through processes of reciprocal exchange, dialogue and negotiation between three different practices, Beyond the Line interrogates the interstitial processes, practices and knowledge(s) produced in the 'deviation' for example, from page to performance, from word to mark, from line to action, from modes of flat image making towards transformational embodied encounters.

Glimpses of the unfolding 'method laboratory' will be made possible through a live-feed video stream that can be viewed in the Bonington foyer. The ‘laboratory’ will also be open to the public at scheduled times where the artists will be ‘in-residence’ to share their working processes.

Beyond the Line is conceived as 'test-bed' for exploring collaborative methods for working between and beyond the disciplinary lines of drawing, dance and writing and is supported by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, the Arts and Culture (BMUKK). Ideas and working processes emerging from Beyond the Line will be developed further as part of a three-year collaborative research project between Cocker, Gansterer and Greil entitled Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line 2014 – 2017 (funded by the Austrian Program for Arts-based Research, PEEK)
