About the Project

Kaldor Public Art Projects in collaboration with Carriageworks presents French choreographer and artist Xavier Le Roy.

This three-part Project will see Le Roy work with artistic collaborator Scarlet Yu, and 18 Australian performers to create a groundbreaking new work
Temporary Title, 2015, and for the first time, the public will be invited to experience the creative development of a Kaldor Public Art Project through a series of open rehearsals. In Addition, Le Roy will perform his seminal solo work Self Unfinished (1998), which has never before been presented in Australia.  
Over the past two decades, Le Roy has collaborated with numerous acclaimed artists around the world to create his works. In 2012, Le Roy was invited by Laurence Rassel to create his first exhibition Retrospective at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies solidifying him as a key figure in the recent dialogue between choreography and contemporary art. This exhibition was later presented to critical acclaim at Centre Pompidou, Paris, and MoMA PS1 in New York. Le Roy’s work Untitled, 2012, was presented at the 27th Kaldor Public Art Project, 13 Rooms, and was recognised as one of the strongest and most resonant pieces in the exhibition.

Make Your Mark
Chalk (2002/-), the ongoing participatory project by internationally renowned artist duo Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla, will be making its mark, literally, on Australia for the first time as part of the annual Art & About program. The giant pieces of chalk – nearly human size at over 1.5m long and eight inches thick – will be placed in the forecourt of Sydney’s iconic Queen Victoria Building, near the Town Hall from 9am – 4pm this Saturday.
