Laresa Kosloff in ‘The same crowd never gathers twice’ at Buxton Contemporary

A series of Laresa Kosloff’s Super 8 film works will be on show as a part of the Buxton Contemporary group exhibition, Crowd Theory. Spanning over a decade, this presentation will feature Office skate (2011), St Kilda Rd (2010), Trapeze (2009), Jogathon (2006) and Fountain (1998).

Spanning moving image, sound, sculptural intervention and performance, The same crowd never gathers twice tests the limits of the arena, highlighting artists’ practices which consider the social and structural architectures that bind these spaces, and by extension, the elastic relationship between performance and reality, audience and participant, public and private. The exhibition invites visitors to consider their presence and agency inside this space, and the potential for more active forms of engagement. Throughout the exhibition, the physical gallery is offered as a site for critical discussion and performance responses.
