Mandy El-Sayegh at London Gallery Weekend Galleries across London will show contemporary art from across the world this weekend

Mandy El-Sayegh, The Minimum
The first artist to cinch London Gallery Weekend’s new public art commission, Mandy El-Sayegh’s performance explores the squeezed space of a solitary confinement cell. Co-created with the choreographer Alethia Antonia and composer Lily Oakes and co-commissioned by UP Projects, it promises to be a visceral study in the limited movement of isolated bodies, which will surely speak loudly to a world coming out of lockdown.
Various times, 13 May, St James’s church, Piccadilly; 14 May, Peckham Library Square; 15 May, Allen Gardens.
