Words Are Not Enough Installation Videos include four videos projected as part of the WORDS ARE NOT ENOUGH dance performance/ visual art/ video installation, created within an artists’ residency at Leeds Central Library, UK during April 2016 Four Artists for four weeks inhabited the Leeds library art project space, Room 700 and transformed the space, weaving a texture of dance, video and visual art into the fabric of the room Gerry Turvey: Dance Artist Rachael O’Neill: Dance Artist June Gersten Roberts: Video Artist Roger Bygott: Visual Artist The ideas for this project emerged directly from the space, the library and the contents housed in the library. Four dance videos were filmed among historic collections of parliamentary records and on the decorative tiled stairways of the library building and were then projected into the installation, embedding the dancers embodied responses and the ornate Victorian library architecture into the white box gallery space. For more info and documentation please see wordsarenotenoughleeds.wordpress.com The artists would like to thank all the staff at Leeds Central Library, especially Hannah Farley (Community Wellbeing Officer) and Chris Tweedly (Facilities Management) for being so patient, supportive and responsive to our eccentricities and demands. By nature artists can be chaotic and unpredictable; libraries by nature tend to be ordered and systematic. We have appreciated the chance to play and create new work out of those fascinating tensions, Text from June Gersten Roberts and Roger Bygott
