Helen Kirwan: perpetuum mobile

29 October – 14 November 2020

perpetuum mobile shows live performances by the artist filmed  in the cedar forests of Lebanon and the Ustyurt plateau and Aral Sea regions of Uzbekistan. These, synthesised with performances under water and other imagery, form a complex montage with a fragmented but interwoven, repetitive structure.

Kirwan is a filmmaker and performance artist: perpetuum mobile reflects her preoccupation with endless journeying as a medium for the poetic and metaphorical construction of memory and her extensive travels in Central Asia and the Middle East.
