Inês Coelho

Resident artist: May 2017

Inês Bento Coelho will be in residency in May to create a performative installation entitled 'Workroom', a new work part of her PhD research on choreography in visual arts. The piece is inspired by the notion of workroom, and features movement and video to reflect on the idea of labour and the tasks we perform as creative practitioners. The work will attend to The Work Room physical and affective features, exploring the potential for site-specific responses. You are invited to the sharing on the 25 May at 5:45PM please RSVP sara@theworkroom.org.uk if you would like to attend.

Bio

I am a visual artist, choreographer, and researcher based in Glasgow. I work in installation, choreography, performance, and photography. I use several media to explore the relationships between object, space, and viewer. My work focuses on the concept of space awareness and incorporates different perspectives about the space that surrounds us. Recently, I choreographed the performance Enheduanna – A Manifesto of Falling at CCA (July 2015). Other projects include Everything changes so quickly, where I worked with a group of dancers in the streets of London to create ephemeral performances in the public sphere. I am currently pursuing a PhD at Glasgow School of Art investigating choreography as a visual arts method, in particular, looking at choreographic practices in the context of installation work. This research is funded by the FCT Foundation and supervised by Laura Gonzalez and Sophia Lycouris. I graduated in 2013 from an AHRC-funded MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (UAL), and was an Artist-in-Residence at Croydon College of Art, Croydon the following year.
