HAYWARD GALLERY - PROJECT SPACE
Wednesday 23 June – Sunday 25 July
Semâ Bekirovic (b.1977) is a young Dutch artist whose work in installation, sculpture, photography and video explores probability and chance, and the way the human world attempts to shape and understand scientific processes. Working in the enquiring, polymath spirit of the Enlightenment-era ‘natural philosopher’, Bekirovic presents a new body of work for her exhibition at the Hayward Gallery Project Space – her debut London show.
JESS FLOOD-PADDOCK - GANGSTA’S PARADISE
Wednesday 4 August – Sunday 19 September
In her first solo show in a major institution, the British artist Jess Flood-Paddock presents a sculptural scenario that explores the historical and cultural specificity of moral behaviour, contemporary self-help culture, and the comedy and tragedy of scale.
From mid-July onwards, experience an artist-led transformation of the Southbank Centre site, with a site-wide installation by cutting-edge stage designer Gringo Cardia and Project Morrinho, a miniature favelacity that takes shape on Riverside Terrace.
UPCOMING EXHIBITION AT HAYWARD GALLERY
MOVE: CHOREOGRAPHING YOU
Wednesday 13 October 2010 – Sunday 9 January 2011
Use your mind and body to gain a new understanding of perception. Move: Choreographing You invites you to become a participant – and in some cases a dancer – in installations and sculptures by internationally renowned visual artists and choreographers from the last 50 years. Move: Choreographing You explores how dance has been a driving force in the development of contemporary art since the 1960s. Among sculptural works, set pieces and installations, encounter dancers from Laban Contemporary Dance on their own journeys through the galleries. Pick up a hula hoop on the outdoor sculpture court terrace, watch impromptu performances and go for a spin in the digital archive.
