Artist Jeremy Millar provides a structure and concept for the work inspired by the practices of the art historian Aby Warburg. Warburg collected diverse images of human gestures and poses from different times and places, positioning them side by side to allow new relationships to emerge, and explore how meanings are constituted by the movement of imagery across time and space. material / rearranged / to / be also features one of Bluecoat’s resident dancers Andrea Buckley, who has as part of Liverpool Improvisation Collective, has been based in their shared dance studio at Bluecoat for over ten years.
