About the work

Drawing is an established part of Joe Moran’s choreographic work often deployed as instructional scores or a means of documenting, processing or thinking. Since 2018, he has experimented with extending this practice in the spirit of expanded choreography – addressing the choreographic as form, subject and discipline that may be distinct from dance and dancing. His drawing practice has evolved to include working in spray paint across varying media and scales.

Joe Moran is a British-Irish artist and choreographer based in London with a wide-ranging practice incorporating performance, critical writing, drawing, curation, advocacy and film. His work centres the body and embodied presence as a site of complex subjectivities and political unrest with queering frequently deployed as its principal critical strategy. Joe’s work is informed by a background in improvisation and experimentation, and a fascination with the problems and opportunities of formal choreographic composition and notions of expanded choreography.

The auction closes at 9pm (BST) Monday 3rd July, however, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased.

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.
