In a dream you saw a way to survive and you were full of joy - De La Warr Pavilion

28 January - 30 April 2017
Gallery: De La Warr Pavilion

This is the latest in a series of Hayward Touring exhibitions curated by artists. These exhibitions often embrace an eclectic range of historical and contemporary works, offering illuminating insights into the artist's own creative processes as well as the relationships between the works chosen. Elizabeth Price is one of Britain's most thoughtful and original artists, whose video installations use a dynamic fusion of image, text and music to explore aspects of social history. She will stage this exhibition as ‘an austere melodrama’ exploring the psychological and formal power of the horizontal, in a vast repertoire of images of the reclining or recumbent body ­ in varying states of weariness, stupor, reverie, grief, death, erotic transport and languor. The exhibition will include sculptures, drawings, photographs, film and videos arranged in four loosely threaded sections: Sleeping, Working, Mourning and Dancing.
