Elena Cologni: Navigation Diagrams

Thursday 4 July / 6.30pm / Free

 

After a period of interaction with Milton Keynes, its people and architecture, Elena Cologni proposes a site specific performative installation. The public is provided with a set of parameters and props to navigate the space opposite the gallery. Their action in space and interaction with each other will create meanings within the given context. Cologni wants to point the attention to the role of trust within socially engaged practices within our everyday social realm.
 
The body of work is part of the multidisciplinary approach of the project Rockfluid, where site-specific art practice is underpinned by elements of geography, cognitive psychology and philosophy. The exercise creates the physical and psychological conditions to enhance an awareness of the perception the body in space.
 
Elena Cologni is a studio artist at Wysing Art Centre, was Artist in Residence at University of Cambridge, Faculty of Experimental Psychology, and at University of Hertfordshire, School of Art. She studied at Brera Academy of Art, Università Statale in Milan (Italy), University of Leeds, and she has a PhD from Central Saint Martins College, London (1999-2004, Fine Art with Philosophy and Psychology). She was awarded from the Arts and Humanities Research Council for her Post Doctoral project at Central Saint Martins addressing issues of memory and liveness (2004-2006), Research Fellow at York Saint John University (2007-2009) when her work became primarily site specific and participatory.
