Pavilion presents Céline Condorelli 11th July

Date uploaded: July 9, 2012

Pavilion presents:

Céline Condorelli
11th July, 6 - 8 pm
Temple Newsam House and Garden

Prior to the launch of Pavilion's 2012 commission by Céline Condorelli, the artist will present her practice, which interweaves strands of collaboration, investigation, installation and publication.

Céline Condorelli works with art and architecture to develop potential interstitial sites of discourse, merging and bringing into question conventional notions of the exhibition and of public space. She creates structures for 'supporting' the work of others, forms of political imaginary, existing and fictional realities. In the installation Surrounded by the Uninhabitable (Again), currently on display at Salt Galata in Istanbul, Condorelli has created a series of 'study structures' that reconfigure and open up the space of the institution. She is also in the process of building The Parliament, a full-scale assembly structure, to host the Disobedience Archive, in Sweden's Bildmuseet. In this work, curated by Marco Scotini, parliamentary voices are constituted of protest, counter-information and dissent.

Pavilion has commissioned Condorelli to develop Additionals, a multi-part sculptural and site-specific installation. The prop-like objects, operating at a scale between furniture and architecture, will function as the set for The Tiger's Mind a new film by Beatrice Gibson that takes as its starting point a musical score of the same name by the experimental composer Cornelius Cardew. Condorelli's set will be exhibited in Leeds from October 2012 to January 2013 and will be a platform for screenings of the The Tiger's Mind, a lecture by Will Holder and a performance of the film's musical score by Alex Waterman.

Condorelli's presentation will take place at Temple Newsam House against the backdrop of the Capability Brown landscape from 6 - 7pm. Tea and buns will served in the Kitchen Garden from 7 - 8pm.
