Jeremy Boyle

Untitled (Annex stairs)

2009

This play is a reflection on the (im)possibility of accepting diversity and the other. The fragmented body of the neoplasm—the fruit of unstable conditions—overcomes barriers, loves and denies itself and others, wanders around, forgetting its profession. It frequently and with pleasure divides, goes through dangerous palpation, questions the possibility of contact with the experience of the other. Poorly brought up but very successful, it invites us to a trans-species transition.

Artist Statement

Often drawing on a background and interest in engineering and music, my work is approached through a broad range of media. Inquiry is fundamental and observation, relation and comparison are methods – placing elements together, seeking similarity and conversation in unexpected places. The process is active and balances system and pattern with responsive improvisation and indeterminacy, leaving intent in flux. Questions are posed and rarely resolve in answer – the motivation simply to uncover the next site of inquiry and energize the process.
