EXHIBITIONS EVENTS INPUT
|Roy Claire Potter
July 18 - 28
This July, we’re happy to welcome Roy Claire Potter to OUTPUT gallery. Influenced by linguistics and performance theory, the artist works across many forms including performance, publication, installation and film to think about what it means to articulate.
For this exhibition, Roy Claire Potter presents two works. ‘Cast Metal Nut’ (38 minutes HD single channel film) sees the artist dressed in a navy blue Lacoste tracksuit inhabiting static frames of woodland scenes. Through acts of resting, waiting, wandering, and cleaning trainers, something close to a filmic character is put forward, but one for whom no defining narrative action ever takes place. 9 page document ‘Lads of Aran’ takes references from multiple commercial, vernacular, and academic sources to draw together ideas of allegory, masculinity, and adolescence to articulate the lad as ‘a figure rather than a character’ one that is constituted by forces and desires external to any particular body that might be enacting it.
