Abstract or Description:

A new work commissioned for Liverpool Biennial 2018. To be developed and produced for the exhibition 2018.

The 10th edition of the UK biennial of contemporary art will be titled Beautiful world, where are you? and will take place from 14 July – 28 October 2018.

Fight is a series of silkscreen posters by Janice Kerbel located outside Bluecoat. Kerbel first choreographed an unarmed fight for a group of 12 individuals. Every action of the fight was recorded on sheets of paper the size of a body, using text in the area corresponding to the part of body where the impact is received. These drawings act both as recipients of action – becoming illegible with the layering of type – and a score for future action. The drawings were then printed onto campaign poster paper, which are presented from the ground up, emphasising their relationship to humans. Kerbel is interested in how fights can both erupt and dissipate unannounced, regardless of context or setting.
