Mandy El-Sayegh: The Minimum
Various Locations, London Gallery Weekend
13–15 May 2022
Designed in collaboration with freelance choreographer Alethia Antonia, three performances over three days by Mandy El-Sayegh will explore how vulnerable bodies can express themselves.
Painted on the ground in three locations across London, an installation the size of a solitary confinement cell serves as a metaphorical stage to address the effect of regulated spaces on illicit bodies, kept away from society for security purposes. While such spaces may appear to benefit the collective, they are equally grounds that suppress the senses and revoke the autonomy of individual subjects, the artist suggests.
