When you can't decide whether you want to be an artist or an actor, the only solution is to combine the two and become an 'actist.' In his Monday or Tuesday exhibition at the Camden Arts Centre, Silke Otto-Knapp creates a stage on canvas. His paintings of performance and landscapes have an ethereal beauty created by his use of wispy black and white gauche or watercolour. Otto-Knapp's theatrical lighting forms depth on flat surfaces. These are set alongside a collage of etchings, which together present dramatic scenes.
The theme of Otto-Knapp's work is complemented by a series of accompanying events including a Salon Afternoon, screening performances and artists' films, a performance by the Dog Kennel Hill Project, and a two-day dance masterclass that focusses on both physical and mental training, such as improvised movements, spatial awareness, and concentration. The class is £60, but all other events are free.
