Louise Colbourne




'Louise Colbourne’s video piece Solo forms part of a recent body of work that contains elements of performance, sculpture and dance. In it she has performed an isolated, dance like movement by balancing on one leg and slowly completing a 360 degree turn. Shown as a loop this piece becomes an endless dislocated activity, more of a physical feat than a flamboyant gesture.

By intensifying the viewing experience this series of minimal actions and gestures become full of emotive possibilities.
