In Rhythmicity Me Christina Lovey uses blocks of wood and her feet to make rhythmic actions and movements that respond to artworks across Tate Britain’s galleries. Through these spontaneous reactions, Lovey aims to create a shared experience between herself, the viewer and the artwork. The performance positions the body as a site for the creation of knowledge.
Lovey finds it easier to take in information if she can make rhythms and sounds. She says, 'By making myself visible as a neurodivergent artist, I intend to challenge preconceptions about how information can be processed. This work doesn’t focus on the learning of a dance or the development of a skill, rather the pure expression of creative joy in response to existing art works.'
