About the work

For fifteen years, Anderson has been performing using the intelligence of the body, alone and collectively, by dancing “with” objects and spaces. In these intuitive and gestural “Technological Dances”, the performer reactivates the strong link between the human and the nonhuman. Throughout this process lies the creation of immense paintings and sculptures, that memorise the objects and places of our anthropocene epoch.

Anderson begins her performances by observing technological objects. She then spreads paint on those objects and paints directly with an object coated in paint. These computers, drones, batteries, VR masks (etc) lead her into an intuitive dance of repetitive movements. Guided by hyper-ventilated breathing, the performer engages in a trance opening another dimension to things.
During Anderson’s dance-paintings, simultaneously, other randomly generated paintings emerge on other concomitant surfaces. The “Chance Compositions” form abstract traces resulting from accidental or non-intentional gestures.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
