This afternoon, something unusual will happen in the Granary Building at King’s Cross. The new shed-like installation Black Maria acts as an architectural platform for a site specific performance, “and it went everywhere / II“.
The 15-minute performances involve faceless bodies, masked in black tights, moving to a set of invisible instructions, “extending and reflecting relationships between points, lines, curves and each other — merging body, geometrics, architecture, space and meaning”.
Black Maria is a major new installation in the Granary Building at King’s Cross. It’s a huge timber structure which you can walk through during the day. In the evenings, steps become seats and the space hosts screenings and discussions.
