Protein, Performance

'Meditation on Violence' (1948), by Maya Deren.

The late Flo-Jo, via Food and Lacquer Too"For a long time, we've been thought of as 'jocks.' Florence brings in the glamour. She walks out on the track like she owns it" (Wilma Rudolph, 1960 Olympic gold medallist, via.)

'Grind' (2011), by Jenni Hiltunen by Miika Lommi, via We Find Wildness.

'Hail the New Puritan' (1988), with Michael Clark. Music by The Fall. Production Design by Leigh Bowery. Directed by Charles Atlas. What a line-up.

Oskar Schlemmer's 'Triadisches Ballett', premiered in 1922; this, a 1970 filmed reprise. This visual research refers to a print being developed for an August show at Protein. Curated by Tom Pearson and Angus McCrum, the brief is simply 'performance'– with required use of the five Olympic colours. Again I've been drawing but also moving parts around, to find a developed set of jointed forms, interchangeable as blocks, I hope, on the letterpress bed.

Thanks very much and sorry for my delay in response. Been away from this space and the Internet, camping and canoeing near Montpellier. Your blog is very interesting in its focus. Will be checking it regularly.
