For this work, Charlie Morrissey proposes that he is a robot. The piece, which will develop during the course of the exhibition, is a means to propose, notice and examine interrelationships between mind and body, between thinking, doing and being.

Volumes Project has been conceived by Frank Bock, Nicola Conibere and Martin Hargreaves, with performances by invited artists Neil Callaghan and Simone Kenyon, Katye Coe, Nicola Conibere, Charlie Morrissey, Florence Peake, and Rahel Vonmoos.

In an era when most of us spend so much of our time in the virtual and digital worlds, Volumes Project focuses on the physical body as a means of exploring actual space. For MIRRORCITY the invited artists will present performances on this theme. Rather than being conventionally staged, these events will take place in ‘in-between’ spaces in the gallery and will activate the areas around artworks.

In investigating the displacing effect of dance and choreography, Volumes Project ask what other kinds of staging are possible and what other places can be proposed where bodies might meet each other.
