Condition the roses, accept the vision. C.R.Y, is centred around questions of liminal space. Thinking through and with the possibilities of re/creation, the performance asks if the liminal space can become physical and what form that might take. What is possible within this space? Who and what can enter/join? Is the liminal space a communal one? What can be shared and is it possible to leave a liminal space with something ‘concrete’, foundational and workable?

Rebecca Bellantoni is an artist based in London. Bellantoni mines everyday occurrences and abstracts them, investigating through the lens of metaphysics, spirit/energy, religion and the aesthetics of them, to trouble the accepted/expected ‘real’; and the experiential ‘real’. Bellantoni asks, how might these removed borders offer portals to self, collective reasoning and healing thought/action? Black geographies and their attendant realities are a research element. 

Her practice is wide-ranging and utilises video, performance, photography, textiles, printmaking, sculpture, writing and sound-text. Recent works and projects have been shown at PUBLICs, Helsinki, Tate, Block Universe, Palais de Tokyo, Raven Row and Stroom Den Haag.
