Michael Clark
Charles Atlas's Hail
the New Puritan, 1986
I was introduced to Clark's performance career at the 2020 Barbican show. Think ballet meets punk meets 
Scottish dancing meets sequinned bodysuit.

Phyllida Barlow
Untitled: Pompoms2011
I've always been drawn to texture and material, and this work serves up a feast of fighting colours and fabric.
Rebecca Horn
Finger Gloves, 1972
The way Horn uses these gloves to extend her body and expand her capabilities is mesmerising and eerie. It makes me think of that terrifying German fairytale - Struwwelpeter.
