Performance by Nina Saunders | Sculpture in the City

Artist Nina Saunders has frequently collaborated with Tracey Neuls on installations, and here she is announcing her latest performance wearing the iconic Chelsea boot, GEORGE Black. Her suit is made of Sanderson’s upholstery, a textile also used by Tracey Neuls in the past to create her limited edition GEEKS.
Sculpture in the City will once again be the associate programme partner with the Whitechapel Gallery for the second edition of Nocturnal Creatures, taking place on Saturday 20 July, 6 – 11pm. Nocturnal Creatures is a one-off event that brings together installations, artist performances, music, film and culinary experiences in the heart of the East End for a late-night contemporary arts festival. 
For this year’s edition, Sculpture in the City is commissioning Guillaume Vandame’s Notice Me (LGBTQIA+ Walk) and Graeme Miller’s On Air (2012) both social sculptures as well as hosting a series of performances and tours led by Sculpture in the City artists including Reza Aramesh, Shaun C Badham, Marisa Ferreira, Leo Fitzmaurice, Clare Jarrett and Nina Saunders. 
Below are the details for Nina’s section of the program: 
A Really Cosy Little Home - Artist Performance with Nina Saunders | 8 - 8.10pm and 9 - 9.10pm 
This site-specific performance ‘A Really Cosy Little Home,’ in collaboration with Salv Scarpa and accompanied by Midori Komachi on the violin, is taking place at Undershaft. Most people can recall the feeling of settling down in a comfortable armchair or collapsing on the sofa after a long exhausting day. In the performance of ‘A Really Cosy Little Home’ the performer morphs into the furnishings in Sanderson’s Rose and Peony large flowered upholstery. ‘A Really Cosy Little Home' invokes the city and its people, solace and loneliness, and the material that may seem rough but has enormous potential, just like us.
All events are free, but booking in advance is essential for most events via this link
The Sculpture in the City programme for Nocturnal Creatures is supported by Fantastic Feats, Leadenhall Market &  22 Bishopsgate.

"We have had a lot of fun in our East London shop, pushing the boundaries of retail, treating it like a gallery and hosting thought-provoking Artist Collaborations and creating our most recent Mise en Scene Shoe Bar. We've had a blast and thought leaving you on a funny note would make perfect sense. We look forward to serving you at our other Two Locations in London and of course Online.

Thanks for all your support, laughs and damn good fun - onwards and upwards!"

-Tracey Neuls
