ActionSpace artist Pardip Kapil presented a live installation to mark the culmination of his three-month residency at Studio Voltaire in partnership with ActionSpace as part of the Explorers Project. Pardip’s large-scale installation intertwined improvised live elements with handmade and found objects, evocative costumes, props, experimental imagery and sound. As part of the archiving process, the work will be titled after the event in order to better reflect the intentions of the live installation.

Processes repeat and echo each other. Pardip often layers materials and projections to create spaces to be activated by himself and other collaborators. Pardip is known for his colourful and joyful installations containing bricolages of found materials, incorporating sound and projection to create ritualistic and often surreal work.

During his residency, Kapil was supported by artist-mentors Pete Gomes, Richard Phoenix, Solomon Garçon, Emily Rees-Haynes, Louis Caseley and Shelly Davies, whose expertise developed new approaches to processes, materials and tools.

This event formed part of Studio Voltaire’s Open House programme.

Explorers is led by Project Art Works and is supported by Arts Council England and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation
