Incendiary, a solo by Cassils explores Cassils’s multidisciplinary practice, which crosses a spectrum of performance, sound, sculpture, photography and video. The show is anchored in Cassils’s live durational works and the resulting performative objects, which melt, vibrate, flash and burn with visceral intensity.
Opening night will feature a live performance of Becoming An Image. Here the artist and photographer are plunged into darkness. When the photographer uses his flash, a burst of temporary light allows the audience to see only suspended moments of the performance, much like a “live” photograph, burning this image into their retina. A sculpture bearing the markings of this violent attack will be on display for the duration of the exhibition.
