Nathan Gray at West Space

Theorist Training Camp/Practice Piece by Nathan Gray opens at West Space tonight, 20 September and continues to 12 October 2012. 

The project is a further iteration in a series of works from Gray which deal with user-directed performance, composition and the seduction of an audience into action. Drawing from Avante Garde Musical composition, where the performer is also the author of the work, the project will form an extension of Gray's recent residency in Indonsia.

TTC/PP takes the preparatory practices of working out, study and music practice and adds them together to form a single complete action, and open performance, made by the viewers themselves. The work is a space divided into reading, exercise and music zones all inspired by the DIY culture of Jogjakarta, Indonesia, where the work was initially developed and shown.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a performance on Friday 28 September at 6.30pm.
