Study on behaviour grids
The following video shows documentation of three separate performances that happened during the first two weeks of May in London. The artist explores and challenges the patterns of behaviour that different spaces hold. He refers to this patterns of behaviour as spatial grids and believes that the grids are like layers or filters that come on top of each individuals identity, as one is not the same person on their bathroom, living room, on the streets, on a restaurant, on a classroom, etc.
The artist uses contemporary dance as an empowering activity to ignore the grid as it allows him to get into a flow state of mind.
The three locations were chosen under the criteria of being public spaces that are frequented by different groups of people. Canary Wharf as a business centre, London Bridge as a touristic area and the neighbourhood of Chelsea as a high class residential area.
The artist understands the performances have three different audiences. First, himself, being isolated on its own mind, he experiments on first hand the emotional side of ignoring the grid; second, the pedestrians that un-aware of an artistic frame, encounter the disruption of the grid; and third, the audience aware of the artistic performance both experimenting it live or through the documentation.
