Emma Cocker will share some of the working processes and ideas developing in and through the artistic research project Choreo-graphic Figures - Deviations from the Line, a collaboration involving artist Nikolaus Gansterer and choreographer Mariella Greil. 

The project stems from a shared interest in the possibilities of ‘expanded practice’ within the respective disciplines of drawing, choreography and writing. Through processes of exchange, this research seeks to pressure drawing, choreography and writing beyond the conventions, protocols and domains of each respective discipline:for choreography, beyond the domain of the body and space of the theatre; for drawing, beyond the domain of the two-dimensional page; for writing, beyond the domain of language, the regime of signification.

During July - August 2014, Cocker was in Vienna working with Gansterer and Greil on an intensive ‘Method Lab’ research residency, within the context of the ImpulsTanz festival. In this seminar, she will share some of the ‘findings’ from this phase of research in relation to the two interconnected aims of the project: (1) to explore the nature of ‘thinking-feeling-knowing’ operative within artistic practice, and (2) to develop systems of notation for sharing and reflecting on this often hidden or undisclosed aspect of the creative process.

This research seminar is presented as part of Nottingham Trent University's PLATFORM series of presentations.

Wednesday 21st January 2015, 12.30 - 14.00, Newton building.

Andrew Brown, Emma Cocker, Katja Hock, Andrew Pepper, Danica Maier, and Derek Sprawson will be showing work related to No Telos within the Resarch Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2019.

The Research Pavilion #3, situated in the Sala del Camino on Giudecca, is a vibrant, changing space that presents the multiple methods and practices of conducting artistic research.

A book, collecting work and discussion around the research project No Telos will be launched alongside examples of activities from each of the participating artists.

Day 1 of the Research Pavilion programme begins with Bodied Languages: Moving | Feeling | Sensing, a series of corporeal, experiential encounters with language through participatory workshops and collective actions.

This is followed by Affinities + Activations: Reading | Listening | Translating, the activation of reading as a generative space of invention and intervention, performed scores for doing and becoming.

During the evening, there will be book launches for the publication-projects No Telos and Re-play, where Venice is approached as a ground for artistic research and aesthetic investigation, for poetic inscription and experimentation.
