Amanda Levete and Unit 9 work on Hayward show

Amanda Levete Architects and digital consultancy Unit 9 have worked on the Move: Choreographing You exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London.

The exhibition, which will run from 13 October to 9 January, aims to explore the relationship between the visual arts, dance and performance, and will feature work from artists including Bruce Nauman, Lygia Clark and Christian Jankowski.

ALA, which was appointed from a shortlist of three, has worked on the interior design and planning of the exhibition, and has collaborated with Unit 9 to develop a multimedia archive.

It has created a series of spatial dividers, made from Dupont Tyvek, which the practice says has been inspired by photographic motion studies of the human body by Etienne-Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge.

The folded oscillations of the dividers form partitions and choreograph the movement of the visitors through the exhibition, ALA says.

The dividers also split the space into ‘public’ and ‘private’ areas, with the public areas featuring a ‘fluid and communal’ display of work, while the private areas use folded materials to enclose and define smaller, more intimate spaces.

After displaying at the Hayward, the exhibition will also travel to Munich and Dusseldorf in Germany.
