Dancing at the Edge of the WorldSara Zanin Gallery, Rome 7 Feb - 13 Jul 2020In this exhibition that appropriates the title of Ursula K. Le Guin’s 1989 non-fiction collection, Dancing at the Edge of the World, the works of ten female-identifying artists create a centre of subversive feminist activity where the body – fleshy, often leaky and sometimes desirous - is omnipresent but never separated from the mind. The artists in this exhibition invade their own privacy to explore embodiment and representation in an anarchic and self-realising strategy of empowerment. Artists include: Saelia Aparicio, Charlotte Colbert, Monika Grabuschnigg, Zsófia Keresztes, Alexi Marshall, Florence Peake, Proudick (Lindsey Mendick and Paloma Proudfoot), Megan Rooney and Eve Stainton.
PROUDICKHannah Barry Gallery, London 7 Nov 2018 - 12 Jan 2019PROUDICK is the first collaborative exhibition of artists and friends Paloma Proudfoot and Lindsey Mendick. Drawing from the tradition of celebrity-couple portmanteaus, the artists have rebranded themselves as Proudick for the duration of the exhibition. Like the personal lives of Kimye, Brangelina and Bennifer, Proudick will offer up their private lives as tabloid fodder through still-life installation and performance, drawing from the world of Greek myth through to the work of Tracy Emin and Sarah Lucas.
