Detritus: Live Art and Performance

Tension Fine Art, 135 Maple Rd, London SE20 8LP

26 November 2022

Detritus is a research project exhibiting Live Art and Performance across mediums and themes, to challenge what performance can and should be in gallery spaces. 


Join us at Tension Fine Art for a day of overlapping performances and artworks that explore liveness, bodies, and materials.

A mixture of experimental live and non-live artworks, broaching durational, interactive, and pre-recorded mediums. The live performances will begin and end on staggered start times, amongst a selection of video and installation, so from open until close there will be something to experience.

Engaging with a variety of topics, the artists navigate being witnessed by an audience in a gallery. Detritus as a project is an investigation into the politics of performing in these spaces, while the artworks comprising Detritus 2022 specifically consider bodies and liveness in this sphere.
