Research output: Practice-Based and Non-textual ResearchExhibition

Abstract

Video installation: Grave Dancing Test #5, shown a part of Creative Challenge, International Exchange Exhibition, White Gallery, Keimyung University, Daegu, South Korea, 2015
4 - 18 December 2015
George Saxon | 2010 | 9 minutes
The concerns in the work stem from my long bouts of illness in childhood and time spent bed-ridden. The constraints of the bed I likened to a grave, as the severe nature of my respiratory condition would entail ‘complete rest’. At every opportunity I would test myself with extreme physical activity, dancing to music whilst no one was watching, until finally I
was exhausted again and the condition would seize my body. The final realisation of this work is a triptych of three relentless dances recorded consecutively, appearing simultaneously to be in competition with each other. The ‘dance floor’ choreography attempts the same movements throughout. –
