Had a wonderful time performing at Best Before with Reid Anderson as part of Operation Lightfoot‘s launch event Infinity Squared (produced by Emilio Pinchi and directed by Luke Moore). Unfortunately the venue would not allow much coverage so I only have one image of the performance courtesy of Jazamin Sinclair.
Only about a month to go before my second time at Threshold Festival… this time I will be performing with Reid Anderson as part of Operation Lightfoot‘s launch event Infinity Squared (produced by Emilio Pinchi and directed by Luke Moore).
This year Threshold is part of the BBC Radio 6music Festival fringe. The opening performance will begin at 6.30pm at brand new venue Best Before in the Baltic Triangle. As well as my response to the theme of infinity, you can view performances from Dorothy Bird, Sara Wolff, Niki Kand, Emilio Pinchi, Kaya from Silence of the Lamps, theatrical performances from Deborah Elizabeth, dance from Aline Costa and video art from Jazamin Sinclair.
The time is almost upon us! I will be hosting a private view for my solo show “Beyond the Linear” on 12th December (from 5:30pm until 7:45pm). The event is free to attend and will include a unique musical intervention from live musicians as well as a sound collaboration with Luke Hodgkinson. All are welcome to attend and tickets are available through Eventbrite.
Hope to see you there!
As beings we take comfort from structure and the organisation of ideas. Nowhere is this more evident than in our methods of communication.
Text is the visualisation of language; the simplification of meaning. Superficially ordered to the eye, complexities manifest once we begin to process. What is the context? What is its intention?
“Beyond the Linear” exposes subtleties in our exchanges and probes the nature of communication itself. Exploring the cognitive properties of sight through a series of visual puzzles; Lloyd identifies the shift between looking and reading. Content and form merge to complicate and acknowledge language’s accessibility.
The diverse range of media on offer invites the viewer to explore the connotations of materials and their ability to shape narrative. Lloyd believes matter to be integral to artistic process since it has the capacity to connect with prior experiences. Such triggers are considered when she examines the impact of the contemporary digital landscape and its effect on us as tactile beings.
In an age of marked polarisation and renewed discourse regarding the nature of content and dialogue’s authenticity, Lloyd believes it crucial to investigate the fundamentals of communication. Through this we gain a deeper, more critical insight into how our understanding is shaped and disseminated.
Yesterday I took part in the first ever site specific live art performance at Chester Bandstand; a beautiful riverside venue located in The Groves. Beginning at 2pm, the piece was created by responding to the location and the bandstand structure. Was great fun to be a part of their summer programme and the weather was thankfully extremely kind to us (only a little drizzle and gusts of wind to contend with!). It even delivered a rainbow at the culmination of events – a delightful surprise!
A few photos of the event taking place on 13th January at Leaf in Liverpool, featuring a collaboration between Dorothy Bird, Operation Lightfoot (Luke Moore, Alice Kirwan, Emily McDaid, Luke Hodgkinson and Deborah Elizabeth), Jazamin Sinclair and myself.

A few pictures of the interactive print installation/performance piece I created for Altrincham Arts Festival 2016. The ball plates were designed in response to the typography, graffiti and type brut in the area.
A bit of information about the art festival I am participating in. It will take place in Altrincham from 25th June – 9th July. I am currently working hard on an installation piece for the exhibition… updates will be available on both Instagram and Tumblr.
