About the Event
Bright Dynasty is an installation of paintings, sculpture, moving image and sound that is made with, and creates the conditions for, dancing. Luscious and luxurious, motifs evolve across a wide spectrum of materials and processes, surfing atemporal and spiritual relations of the human in the cosmos and the cosmos about the human. High resolution definitions of personhood manoeuvre and accumulate against structures of oppression, stimulated by dances of curiosity between forms in the vortex of nebular relations at the centre of Bright Dynasty.
An exhibition from artist Adam Moore.
Weekly performances will take place throughout the exhibition.
Join us for the opening of Bright Dynasty on Friday 3 June, 18.00 – 20.00.
“Bright Dynasty began as a personal and political creative practice to centre, explore, and consider blackness within a transdisciplinary multidimensional space within which I could locate and understand myself. From my early childhood experiences of Saint Lucia, my research naturally broadened to the West Indies and then to Africa, to better understand the nuance, paradox, complexity, and imaginative reach of my being as a British-St Lucian artist, beyond and outside of the definitions, tastes, and eyes of western whiteness. The exhibition and performance series has evolved through two previous iterations in as many years, supported by Jerwood Arts and Kunstraum, London (2020-21), and Hypha Studios and London Borough of Waltham Forest (2022). With this new production, Bright Dynasty presents agile understandings of identity and what it means to be in a changing world with others.” – Adam Moore
