Ashmolean preparations

Cafe Reason are preparing for a work in progress showing at The Randolph Gallery at The Ashmolean 26th August. Exploring the senses and the use of freewill as we negotiate the contradictions and opposite pulls of life -the dominant themes in our latest project ‘The Heart’s Desire’ -a collaboration with voice artist Anne L Ryan, we are in this version also influenced by the particular architecture and character of the Randolph Gallery itself: formal and rectalinear lined by alcoves inhabited by statues missing body parts, busts and heads on plinths. I have taken to drawing a series of patterned rectangles decorated with squiggles, lines and dots. These are of course the dancers and their movements in the space…I am curious to see how much our plan can lift itself neatly off the page in to 3d movement and sound!
