From an ox to an egg was curated as a performance screening and Live Collage, as part of Little City Studio, a day of artists moving image at Phoenix, Leicester. I invited Frances Scott to show her recent film Diviner alongside Keira Greene who showed a work in progress, using a performative gesture with an object in place of sections of missing film for a new work Yolk. The screening room was set up with Live Collage, using photocopies from books relating to women within film, lent by De Montfort University Library.
This event was part of an ongoing relationship with Phoenix, Leicester where I have previously shown and curated work for their Cube gallery, and introduced work by Ben Rivers and Neil Beloufa, from the ICA touring programme for public events.
This event also formed part of the research around the role of conversation within artists practice, extending the work that became the publication Slow Reveal, with Frances Scott and Leanne Turvey (ALF)
The title From an ox to an egg, comes from a phrase I used in conversation, to explain a typo, in which Yolk, was previously referred to as Yoke: from a load bearing weight, to the essence of growth.
