Lisson Presents 4

Allora & Calzadilla, Ceal Floyer, Ryan Gander, Fernando Ortega, Wilfredo Prieto, Santiago Sierra

The forth episode of ‘Lisson Presents’ brings together a group of artists whose inspiring work creates new exciting synergies between the traditions of sculpture and performance. Guest artist is Wilfredo Prieto, while Allora & Calzadilla are presenting a new film alongside recent and new works by Ceal Floyer, Ryan Gander, Fernando Ortega and Santiago Sierra.

The exhibition presents physical artworks realised in an overt liaison with performance. Each work involves objects that relate or refer to particular uses in everyday life, yet levitates the ordinary through the injection of provocative, charming and metaphorically charged approaches. These objects, in their physical presence or as central ‘characters’ in video and photographic documentations or films, imply or explicitly solicit possible uses, gestures or physical engagement. The promising relationship between sculpture and performance is explored by all artists with a playful and often ironic critical stance that subverts the common uses, references or shapes of the objects brought into play or referred to.
