5pm Mette Sterre’s ‘Structurealist’ performed by movement artist Alexandra Baybutt
Mette Sterre, current student of Central Saint Martins, considers the ‘de-identification’ of the human body; questioning the stigmatisation of difference and the social construction of identity by blurring the boundaries between the inanimate and the animate, nature and artifice, gender and object and subject. She does this by creating sculptural costumes, giving birth to new forms of living beings, working on the border of theatre and live art. Sterre performs internationally; her work has been shown at Art Rotterdam, Scope Art Basel, Kunsthalle Charlottenbourgh and the Hermitage in Amsterdam.
6pm Necole Schmitz, recent graduate of Chelsea College of Arts, performed her new performance piece ‘Murtos’, commissioned by Made in Arts London especially for ‘Fake Nature’.
‘Murtos’, reflects on the rites and remembrances surrounding grief and longing. Playing the part both of medium and phantasm, Schmitz attempts to publicly commemorate the ceremony her father undertook as a private sacrament of sorrow and affection following the passing of his mother. Schmitz’s work uses sculpture, installation and performance to explore ideas surrounding interactions between the artist and viewer in the context of the experiential use of space.
Shelly Asquith, President of the Students’ Union of UAL, Central Saint Martins graduate, worked with Hackney Silver Surfers for a special session at Fake Nature.
