Dancing with sculpture

Following on from the motifs I explored with my Space Standards, Meander and Olympians, here a few collages of sculptures to dance with.

Some of the background images are of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s amazing Rosas.




coda [ˈkoːda] noun

 “In music, a coda is a passage that brings a piece (or a movement) to an end. Technically, it is an expanded cadence. It may be as simple as a few measures, or as complex as an entire section.”

 Oxford Dictionary of English


MEANDER (Spiegel im Spiegel im Spiegel) Timber and mirrored Perspex, 88 x 44 x 396 cm. Gabor Stark, 2018


As a coda to my artist residency for the ‘Art in Park: Kearsney interpreted’ project, I installed the MEANDER sculpture at Kearsney Abbey for a last time. Thanks again to everybody who came along to the Meanderings event in August. Here some excerpts from the visitor feedback we received in response to the question ‘What was the best thing about the event?’

“How we could just turn up and discover the art and the music in this beautiful setting, and how Gabor Stark responded to the river and used it so well. // Lovely relaxing atmosphere, beautiful music and fantastic artwork. // Excellent balance of sunlight, trees and music and artwork too! // The atmosphere with arts and music immersed in the park. // Live music in a pastoral setting was magical. Brilliant sculpture worked well in park. // All of it. The synergy between all parts. // The Meanderings event had beauty of many varieties. // Hearing innovative music in a beautiful setting. Please keep up Art in the Park. // The trees. // All of it – the music, surroundings and sculpture. // Combination of music, art and the gorgeous setting. / Combination. // The atmosphere under the tree with the light and music. // Leon String Quartet’s performance. // Melding of art, music, surroundings and Lux Aurumque. // Location, artists, all brilliant. // The music, art and sunshine. // Fantastic event. // The curation, location, installation with orchestra. // Atmosphere and environment // The place.”
