Working outside of our Gallery space we have Izabela Brudkiewicz, who
presents 'Not so, after all.'
A performance artist based in Hastings who recently graduated from the
Fine Art BA at Hastings College, Izabela's work is characterised by
extended durational performances undertaken in the public realm. Often
working over a number of days, Izabela's performances push herself to
the very limits of her physical and mental endurance. Through these
actions Izabela is interested in examining the near endless repetition
of pointless, yet physically demanding tasks, and how these acts can
force her to explore concepts of sacrifice, failure and spiritual
For 7 days, 8 hours a day, Izabela will be pushing a large spherical
object, created from layers of blankets, wire, paper and felt, on a
route along Bexhill promenade and encircling the Pavilion. Through
carrying out these actions in public spaces Brudkiewicz creates an
intriguing intervention, often creating interest and a talking point for
passers by. This human interaction is an important part of the work and
Brudkiewicz will invite people to write notes and thoughts inspired by
her piece. These notes are then added to the ball to remain with
Brudkiewicz for the duration of her task.
The performance will come to an end at the De La Warr Pavilion at 5pm on Sunday the 14th September as part of Dear Serge.
