The Hayward Touring exhibition Elizabeth Price Curates… featuring Francesca Woodman at Glynn Vivian, Swansea
Elizabeth Price Curates: IN A DREAM YOU SAW A WAY TO SURVIVE AND YOU WERE FULL OF JOY
13 May 2017 - 28 Aug 2017
This exhibition by Elizabeth Price, winner of the 2012 Turner Prize, is the latest in a series of Hayward Touring exhibitions curated by an artist and features works by over forty artists.
IN A DREAM YOU SAW A WAY TO SURVIVE AND YOU WERE FULL OF JOY is staged as 'an austere melodrama' exploring the psychological and formal power of the horizontal, through an extensive selection of images of the reclining or recumbent body in varying states of weariness, stupor, reverie, grief, death and languor. The installation is designed to create an immersive experience for visitors, in which works are connected through 'the slippery, fugitive logic of a dream'. The exhibition includes sculptures, drawings, photographs, film and videos arranged in four loosely threaded sections: Sleeping, Working, Mourning and Dancing.
