Royal Academy Courtyard, Burlington House, Picadilly

Nicola Conibere

In Do-Re-Me two figures, wrapped around each other and within swathes of tarpaulin, roll across the RA courtyard. Creating a mass that appears both familiar and strange, the performers’ fragmented limbs flail and reach for movement, continually destabilising and transforming the integrity of each body’s form. At once compelling and playful, Do-Re-Me mines the relationship between people, space and matter, and through these qualities converses with Conrad Shawcross’ sculptural installation The Dappled Light of the Sun.
