I dance for you my edifice

l'etrangere
44a Charlotte Road
London, United Kingdom

l’étrangère is pleased to present I dance for you my edifice, a solo exhibition by London-based artist Evy Jokhova. The site-specific, multimedia installation, comprised of interactive sound sculptures, photographs, paintings and performance, investigates our relationship stone — a ‘historical constant’ whose significance is simultaneously entwined with ancient mythology and contemporary obsessions with materiality and synthesis.

Drawing on references to antiquity and Greek mythology, Jokhova examines our longstanding relationship with stone in a series of interactive sculptures imbued with sound — elongated, stone-like pillars and stone stacks — that inhabit the gallery space. Despite their weighty demeanour, the sculptures are made from synthetic, light- weight materials, manipulated by Jokhova to mimic stone.

Interactive and performative, Jokhova has created a range of sounds and compositions, in collaboration with programmer Hannah Cross and composer Oliver Price, that see some of the sculptures function as motion-activated instruments. Hidden within their surfaces, Jokhova has imbedded motion sensors that detect the speed and proximity of the audience, allowing the sculptures to respond to their audience — transcribing their motions into sounds. Others will silently find their place, between ruins and mock artefacts, on a raised museum-style platform.

For the closing event of the exhibition, Jokhova has invited a choreographer to treat one of her sound sculptures as a dance partner , to form a dance sequence together.
