David Berridge

IMG_1370I am a writer making text works for exhibition, performance, print and online publication. Recent projects include GUEST WORK GUESS WORK, an exhibition at 7.9 Cubic Metres/ Stanley Picker Gallery, London, and curating WRITING EXHIBITIONS, a series of micro-exhibitions exploring connections of writing and exhibition making. I am particularly interested in experimental essaying; connections of writing, script and notation; and combined pedagogical implications of ecology and experimental art practice. Work online at Rubric, soanyway, Fillip, and Refutation.

Projects in 2009 include Inside Performance, a regular column for Dance Theatre Journal, Notes on Notes, a performance writing residency at the Laing Gallery and Writing Live, an experiment in art, writing and performance with the Performa Biennial of Visual Art Performance, New York. Current fascinations are the porosity of text, improvisation and live writing.
