Press Releases - The Toilet Gallery
Christine Ellison aka Polly Fibre
Christine Ellison is an Irish artist based in London. With a background in graphic design and textiles, her work traverses a range of contexts from printed publications to installations and performances as sonic seamstress Polly Fibre. Since 2005 she has performed in New York and Cleveland, as well as regularly in London and Ireland.
Pollyâ€™s performances are a series of indiscreet* compositions that explore aspects of contemporary pop culture through a post-digital aesthetic. In previous works Craftwork (2005-2006), Cut & Paste (2006) and Glitchstitch (2007), digital analogies are renegotiated through materials, tools and machinery, Processes of fashion construction are unravelled to reveal their core elements which in turn become the raw material for building new compositions in a performative context.
At The Toilet Gallery Polly Fibre will perform RECORD. This new piece that refers to the concept of recording as much as the allure of the vinyl record, explores the seductive qualities of technology through sound and surface. By process of its own construction (live sampling, recording, playback) RECORD tentatively aggravates the relationship between The Live Performance and The Record.
Elements from the live events will be on display in the gallery from May 4th -25th.
