Madi Boyd graduated in sculpture from the Slade School of Art in 2005. Since then she has exhibited widely both her short films and installations. She has collaborated for the past three years with neuroscientists from UCL; the installation they made together can currently be seen in the Science Museum, London.
‘The View from NoWhen’ allows the audience to become observers, with an unrestricted perspective on time, witnessing a disruption to space and time. The piece will explore and map the interaction between movement on stage and the space of the stage itself, so that the performer appears to pull and distort the air as if it were tangible malleable matter. Objects on stage will move, crumble or bend in relation to the gravitational force exerted by the performer. The space will appear to stretch, grow and shrink or momentarily reflect as it dances with the performer.
