Friday Night: Science Under Stars with Adam Zaretsky
June 11, 2016
Saturday Night Performance: Adam York Gregory & Gillian Jane Lees [Scotland, UK]
Adam York Gregory & Gillian Jane Lees
Adam York Gregory is a scientist, visual artist and film maker. Gillian Jane Lees is a freelance contemporary performance practitioner and collaborator. Whilst their individual practices differ greatly, together they've discovered a fertile territory for collaboration – Science and art, visual and performance, still and moving. They have a shared artistic sensibility, a Modernist approach to work and an inherent interest in liveness, sharing a strong interest in process. Gillian approaches the work as a durational performer, whilst Adam approaches it through experimental method, extracting data, evaluating and documenting. Adam tends towards the scientific and visual, Gillian examines the piece as a subjective performer, with reference to the physical nature of perfection and control. They find inspiration from the different ways their respective practices view ideas. Often this causes a tension, which forms the basis for an investigation, a question that they both seek to answer.
