David Palliser, Artists statement, 2016
At Phasmid Studios I will be continuing the work I did in Leipzig last year at during my LIA residency. I will be working primarily on paper, often using a collage method where drawings are torn and holes are cut and the paper and image are reassembled. This give a kind on default spatial jump and rescues lost causes. I will also be developing my improvised music with saxophone and elementary percussion – During my time in Berlin I will perform at MissHecker and Noiseberg, where I will collaborate with some local musicians. At MissHecker, I will release my new cd “Lame and Free”. Of course I’ll be exploring intently the Berlin art and music scene as well- there’s nothing like it!
