fs presents ‘SOFT SHELL HARD CORE’ an audiovisual performance by Dylan Spencer-Davidson as part of ‘Reading Week’ at CBS.
The artist, alone with their laptop as if in their bedroom, compiles intimate texts from a variety of highly personal sources, with their desktop projected behind them for all to see. Diary entires and emails with friends, text messages and phone notes are intertwined, detached from their original source and set to music, opening up a gateway into a collective subconscious…
Part exhibition, part contemplative study space, ‘Reading Week’ sees a series of invited artists initiate peer support and study whilst presenting live works that deal with text and reading, words and speaking, linguistics, language, looking and learning. Situated around a specially made, malleable seating installation influenced by a collection of egg cups, an ongoing Reading List will be nestled there too, with the installation playing host to two Saturday afternoon Reading Groups also. All kindly housed in the gallery at CBS.
Dylan Spencer-Davidson (b. 1987) works with performance, music and video in Berlin, concerned with the meditation of affect, desire and embodiment in interpersonal communication. He completed a BA in Modern and Medieval Languages at the University of Cambridge and an MA in Communication Art & Design at the Royal College of Art.
Dylan Spencer-Davidson’s ‘SOFT SHELL HARD CORE’ is the fourth live event presented as part of ‘Reading Week’. Drinks will be served from 18.30 onwards, audiovisual performance begins at 19.00.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME 🙂
