Art Projects 2018

Xavier Le Roy & Scarlet Yu – Still Untitled

Opening Friday July 20, 2018
Exhibition period Workshops daily, July 20–Aug 5, 2018
Curator Rachel Tess

Can I show you my sculpture?
In July and August, Xavier Le Roy and Scarlet Yu explores the question in a workshop with Wanås' visitors and shares it through encounters in the Park. Still Untitled takes the form of sculptures embodied and presented by human beings to human beings. Xavier Le Roy,  Scarlet Yu, and the Still Untitled team at Wanås Konst invite visitors to engage in one-day workshops that examine the relationship between live art and sculpture in relation to time and public space. Le Roy is one of the foremost names in choreography. Le Roy and Yu have collaborated together for the Venice Biennale and most recently Skulptur Projekte Münster 2017, among other places. Since 2016, Wanås Konst has been working with a long-term investment in Live Art. The program is developed with affiliate curator Rachel Tess.

Time stops. Time stands still. Time is interrupted, ruptured, and cracked. Time is given, taken, and stolen. Time is on our side. Time is moving slowly. Time goes by so fast. If we only had the time… How was your time today?

Time is something to consider at Wanås Konst. How long did it take you to get here? What is the time that it would take you to get to a sculpture? How long would you spend with it? How would it change your perception of time passing? And in what ways do we spend time with each other here in this place? We have preconceived notions of time’s capacity to act upon us, be caught or controlled, given, or shared. In what ways can live art bend our perception of time? In what way does live art challenge the notion of time in a visual arts institution? The work Still Untitled by Xavier Le Roy with Scarlet Yu investigates the incompatibility between the conventions of live art and sculpture to produce a work where different times can coexist. 

In 2016, Wanås Konst began actively making performance and dance a part of the program. Not just a one-time event, but a long-term investment in live art, art that must be experienced in the moment and requires your presence then and there. Through Still Untitled we continue to challenge the notion of live art in the visual arts context with the consistent and persistent presence of the Still Untitled team. Rather than programming a series of one-off performances we allow the work of Le Roy and Yu to unfold, shift, and be shifted by the participation of Wanås’ visitors in and around the park. We extend the lifespan of the work indefinitely, as each visitor walks away from the sculpture park with his or her own embodied sculpture, to be potentially present anywhere, anytime, for anyone.

– Rachel Tess

Still Untitled is made possible with the support of Swedish Arts Council, Skåne Regional Council, MARC, Goethe-Institut Schweden, L'Institut français de Suède and ABF Skåne Nordost. 


I'm interested in this moment, when you get the sense that you have made time rather than spent it or made it productive. It's not given. It's something else than consuming time or being consumed by it. 

– Xavier Le Roy

Xavier Le Roy & Scarlet Yu have worked together since 2014 for projects including Retrospective in Singapore (2014), Temporary Title first commissioned as the 31st Kaldor Public Art Project, Sydney and Still Untitled for Skulptur Projekte Münster 2017.

Xavier Le Roy (born 1963, lives in Berlin) is one of the foremost names in chorography. He holds a doctorate in molecular biology, and has been working as a choreographer since 1991. Since 2018 he is Professor of Applied Theatre Studies at the University of Giessen (Germany). He explores various modes of production and reception of movements to question divisions that structure our world: nature/human, actor/spectators, object/subject, etc.

Scarlet Yu (born 1978, lives in Berlin) worked as rehearsal director and performer at the Arts Fission Company in Singapore from 2000 until 2012, and obtained an MFA in Dance from the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts in 2015. Using autobiographical material, her works create choreographed one-on-one situations about memory and body.
