with Roberto Nicchitta

Unearthed (2015), performed at London Topophobia 12, Performers: Adam Moore and Roberto Nicchitta. Hackney Oval. Camera: Jamie Hamilton.

Frustrated by mythical representations of Land Art – implying distant regions, displacement, and irreconcilable inaccessibility – fragments of London’s topology are relocated and reconfigured. Resisting the deliberate shaping of their materials into predetermined forms, Moore and Nicchitta explore the nature of this site as an extension of London’s perpetual urban development, approaching its edges and minutia sensorially using embodied and sonorous improvisational structures. Durational and intermittent movement, sound and sculptural forms settle and morph in a modulating psychogeographic plane. Resisting monumentality, cyclical and interrelated compositions establish themselves and unfold, then dissolve and collapse over time in transit through space.
