Kettle's Yard House and Gallery

Fig-futures begins at Kettle’s Yard with a presentation of A Setup, a collaboration between sculptor Eva Rothschild and choreographer Joe Moran. Rothschild’s sculptural structures will occupy the Sackler Gallery along with two dancers who will perform Moran’s Singular, exploring the idea of a single consciousness embodied in more than one form, live in the spaces each day during the exhibition.

Films by both Rothschild and Moran will be shown in Gallery 2 including Rothschild’s Boys with Sculpture, which follows a group of young boys as they are invited to enter a gallery full of her sculptures, gradually exploring the objects they find and interacting with them to the point of near destruction.

fig-futures is a project supported by Arts Council England, Art Fund, and Outset and follows the major project fig-2 in which 50 projects were presented across 50 weeks at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London in 2015. fig-futures takes the one-week exhibition structure along with fig-2 alumni artists to four venues across the UK including Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool; Kettle’s Yard; The Gallery at De Montfort University, Leicester; and Plymouth Arts Centre.
