Cally Spooner

  • The work of Cally Spooner (b. 1983, based in London) includes essays, multimedia installations, and performances. She studied philosophy after studying dance and theater for several years. The body, and gesture become devices for transcribing the domain of language and theory. The artist insists that production must be in perpetual evolution, through architecture, a museum and the bodies of the interpreters. This process creates an extra form, and leaves the work open. She always establishes a distance from the historical practice of performance. This is the distance in the sense that she doesn’t participate in the performances, but directs them. Bodies are the interpreters of her ideas. She inscribes her practice in the consciousness of institutions, organizations and industries that have the power to organize our thoughts and that provides us with modes of expression and shapes our emotions and feelings.
