Protagonist Antagonist/ BLOCK BLOCK BLOCK
Stephanie Black-Daniels is an artist, researcher and facilitator based in Glasgow whose practice explores the dynamics between body, object and action.
Thomas McCulloch is a producer and performance artist. He graduated from the RCS (formally RSAMD) in 2010 with a first class honours degree in Contemporary Performance Practice. He has presented his performance work at The Arches, Buzzcut Festival, Green Room Manchester and with Perfo Puerto Chile.
BLOCK BLOCK BLOCK has been developed post-pandemic as the artist finds her place as a new mother, artist and her practice of live performance in relation to the architecture of public buildings.
The following is a response to the live performance that took place on Friday 22 October 2021 in Gallery 1 at the Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow. The text is intended to be another layer to access the themes of the work and a way to invite audiences that are currently unable to attend in-person events due to COVID-19. It can be read whilst wandering through the installation or at home, providing a different angle to explore some of the themes in the work such as bodies, territory and their aesthetic, political and social distance with one another.
