Dancer: Daisy West, trained at Rambert.
This series of work collaborates with classical and contemporary dancers to explore a process of becoming. In these pieces, folklore-esque figures are depicted amid a circle of ancient ruins, inspired by the remains of the Delphic Temple of Apollo, God of renewal. Classical style architecture, culture and philosophy are countered by a wildness, struggle and freedom, with each figure at a different point on their journey towards self-celebration and acceptance. Delicate use of paint and cracked plaster textures are complemented by the neutral sandy-toned colour palette which draws the eye to the evocative motion of the dancer.
