Act 1 & 2 by Alison Lloyd

Act 1 & 2 by Alison Lloyd


Act 1 & 2 acts as a duet of scenes. Lloyds investigation of walking runs central to the publication.

Act 1 contains photographs documenting herself walking and a short essay in which Dr Cathy Turner looks at Lloyd’s walks as if they were dance. Act 1 also examines the correlation between place and person, and its relationship to the history of artists using walking as an art practice.

Act 2 relates to the previously mentioned areas of research but the event here is closure. It directly documents the last day that the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art was open before staff had to leave their offices and the gallery space, both a reflection of closure and the act of walking an empty gallery.

This booklet is perfect for anyone who enjoys the pleasures of walking, dance or art.
