Delaine Le Bas

Local Name: Unknown … Gypsies?

Drawing upon her Romany heritage and family ties to the New Forest area, Delaine Le Bas explores the artefacts, imagery and hidden history surrounding the Gypsies.

In this immersive environment constructed within the gallery space, the artist will recreate and occupy her own version of ‘the compounds’ which were makeshift structures employed by the British government to contain Gypsy families in the New Forest during the first half of the 20th century. Incorporating photography, film and archival material alongside textiles and costumes hand printed and embroidered by the artist, the exhibition will feature an evolving installation embodying individual and collective experience, and will shine a contemporary light upon the complex and disturbing story of the Gypsies throughout the UK and Europe.

William Forsythe (Frankfurt/Dresden)

William Forsythe (Frankfurt/Dresden)
Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No. 2

Circus Street Market
William Forsythe hailed as one of the world’s most innovative choreographers, credited with moving the focus of dance from the classical tradition to a dynamic, 21st century artform.  This  special installation populates the Old Municipal Market space with hundreds of delicate pendulums, swinging in timed sequences. As you move around without touching the pendulums, your strides and side-steps will produce a lively choreography of manifold and intricate avoidance strategies.

Supported by the Aisbitt Family

Zimoun

Zimoun
University of Brighton Gallery

Harnessing sound and space in works of minimalist power, the Swiss artist Zimoun explores the rhythm, flow and interaction between architectural spaces, commonplace objects and mechanical systems. In this major new work, specially created for the University of Brighton Gallery, Zimoun responds to the bright, spare interior with his characteristic articulation of the tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life.

Zimoun combines the low-tech — plastic bags, cardboard boxes, old furniture — with mechanical components such as ventilators, speakers and microphones. His installations are all about making us re-evaluate the relationship between the visual, sonic and spatial elements of a space.
