Suse Weber at Launch Pad

26 January 2014 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Sarah Elson, UK Friends of NMWA Trustee and Patron, is opening her home for one week in the launch of a series of private art commissions. For the pilot project, Elson has invited Berlin-based artist Suse Weber who will have free rein in part of Elson’s home and create a performative time-based piece that responds to its domestic and private context. For the Elson commission, Weber will explore the way certain design features of the Victorian semi-detached house renovated by architect Seth Stein lend themselves to a performative or observational function. As in any of her works, the viewers are participants or actors, in that they often interact with Weber as she replaces and changes the components of the work. Here, though, the rooms will become a stage for the work, the artist, visitors, and the family who live there. In this domestic setting Weber will reference the everyday activities that relate to an intimate personal life – hanging up one’s coat, moving between spaces within a home that have distinct purposes (sitting room, kitchen), communicating between rooms and levels of a London house.  It’s open to the public by appointment at the below times. Monday, 20 January: 2-6pm Tuesday, 21 January:10-1am Wednesday, 22 January: 2-6pm Thurs to Sun, 23-26th: 10-1 and 2-6 UK Friends of NMWA are visiting on the final day to meet the artist and see the results of this performance.  Please RSVP to RSVP@women-in-the-arts-uk.org to join UK Friends of NMWA on our visit or email directly to Launch Pad to visit at another time or get further information.
