The Spirit of the Staircase



 The Sunday Painter d Londra presenta una bella collettiva per la stagione estiva. 

The Spirit of the Staircase presents new work by artists Beth Collar, Danilo Correale, Andrew Gillespie, James  Parkinson, Sue Tompkins and Marie Toseland. The work circles various processes of translation from a range of  linguistic, material and bodily positions.


When translated, information, whether within a digital file, an ancient artefact or a nuanced linguistic phrase, is lost  and new material and meanings are formed. I am interested in the time – whether seconds or centuries – that   something is in translation. As cultural artefacts travel they are put through a state of transposition, accumulating  different readings through time
