8 shots from The Tetley’s latest exhibition
Simeon Barclay in his first institutional solo exhibition in the North of England, presents a new body of work informed by research into dance. From the visual spectacle of contemporary dance theatre to the communal experience of the night club dance floor, the exhibition Bus2move manifests as a series of sculptural installations combining costume, film and video, photography, lighting and sound. Barclay’s interest in dance and its many facets centres on the construction of masculinity, with particular focus on the way popular perceptions and stereotypes become defined, contested and encoded upon the dancing male body.
Creating immersive environments with lighting and sound that bring theatrical influences into the gallery setting, Bus2move brings together resonant images and objects that speak to each other across cultural divides; between high theatre and popular culture; individual and collective identity.
The exhibition explores the relationships between performance, installation, costume display, stage design, sculpture and props.
