Helen Carnac: Edge and Shore, exhibition and performance

Visual artist  Helen Carnac and dance artist Laïla Diallo present Edge and Shore, a new work exploring the edges and boundaries of making and working, performance and installation.

Working within the gallery space the artists reveal an ever-evolving work that brings together objects, images, film, writing and live making. A development of an extended research project where the artists considered process and making, the work explores where the borders of their two creative practices meet and permeate. Edge and Shore is a progression of Side by Side (2012), a six week residency initiated by Siobhan Davies Dance in partnership with the Crafts Study Centre where the two artists were invited to investigate the act and process of cross-disciplinary making. This work is commissioned by Siobhan Davies Dance and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Developed with additional support from Battersea Arts Centre, Bristol City Council, Bristol Old Vic Ferment, Quay2C and Stroud Valleys Artspace.
