Charlie Morrisey

I am a Robot

This inquiry relates to a current piece of work in development as part of Volumes Project in a new exhibition  MIRRORCITY at the Hayward Gallery, London.

In the work entitled  I am a Robot, Charlie proposes that he is a robot, and works with this idea as a way to explore relationships between the mind and the body - thinking and doing.

The work comes out of his earlier work for Siobhan Davies Dance Table of Contents, and continues a theme of looking at evolution as a means to excavate and draw attention to the thinking conscious body.
