Nuur’s works are neither sculptures nor installations, forms which he considers to be too immobile and rigid to produce the spatial and temporal interaction he wants them to have with their environment and viewers.

By effecting environment and viewers, this event opens up Navid Nuur’s exhibition in a new way through performance. The evening will bring together disparate performers working across a range of acoustic and electronic music-based improvisation, along with subtle participatory intervention.

Premiering new performance, Dante Rendle Traynor will mix music, prop and visuals with his experimental lounge band The Golden Boys; Iranian avant-garde group Parstronix will treat the objects in the exhibition as the score, interpreting them through improvisation; electronic sound artist Jeremy Hubbard will be experimenting with peoples innate rhythm with a multi time signature piece; Lucy Bannister's interactive project 'I can see the worlds through the stars...' employs origami as a means of making personal stories into physical entities.

Lucy Bannister started writing incredibly short stories when she was at Glasgow School of Art in the late '90s. She began recording them when she was studying for her masters in Dundee and since then she has been combining this with asking other people to tell her their stories, or help her to uncover stories, and deliberately not writing them down or recording them. Recently she has been experimenting with creative interference, carrying out performative, often politically motivated, actions outside of a formal artistic framework.

Jeremy Hubbard is a instrumentalist, singer, composer and electronic sound artist who experiments with using a mix of  traditional acoustic instruments, electronic synthesis and what ever else comes to hand to create things of a musical nature. Currently a student of Electronic Music at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. 

Parstronix are a loosely formed troupe of Iranian avant-garde improvising musicians from London. The troupe was formed by Fari Bradley and stems from her association with the Resonance Radio Orchestra, founded by arts-music radio station Resonance 104.4FM. Fari has previously written graphic scores as commissions for the V&A and Jellyfish Theatre as part of Architecture Week.

Dante Rendle Traynor grew up in Cambridge, after being born in Adelaide, Australia, in 1989. He completed a Foundation at the Byam Shaw before going on to study at The Slade School Of Fine Art, from which he graduated in 2012. Dante is currently living an artist in London, along side performing with his experimental lounge band, The Golden Boys.
