PLAY | NATHAN GRAY
Works<30s no46-55 - with Lou Hubbard | 2015
Unfolding from a series of succinct studio and on site experiments Nathan Gray’s work approaches the object as a score for action. Aiming to improvise with the given, the found and the pre-made he uses brevity, precision and humour as strategies to open possibilities in restricted material circumstances. Using his background in experimental music his work draws on a body of knowledge that is shared between art and music. Works<30s is an ongoing series of short video and performance works (since 2013) all under 30 seconds long that use brevity as strategy.
