Photographer: Brian Hartley

Fascinated by detail, nuances of time, texture, memory and landscape Luke Pell is an artist living in Scotland. Working in and in between spaces of dance, theatre and live art. Maker and curator he collaborates with other artists and organisations imagining alternative contexts for performance, participation and discourse that might reveal wisdoms for living.

Noticing threads that weave between people and place he makes work that takes form as intimate encounters, poetic objects, installations and designed environments for physical and virtual spaces. Approaching these large and small-scale works as responsive dances and choreographies that attend to notions of loss and landscape, memory and materiality through the poetry of the body.

Committed to artist and art-form development his curatorial projects create spaces for artists and experts from different fields and realities to gather and explore relationships between words and movement, periphery and community. Arriving at new perspectives, articulations and understandings of what it is to be in the world, through interdisciplinary collaboration.

He is an Associate Artist with Candoco Dance Company, Fevered Sleep and Janice Parker Projects.

Luke will be Guest Curator for a new series of Candoco Dialogues from 2014-2015.
