Sian Dorrer

ACID PRAWN is a performance label run by Sian Dorrer. Sian Dorrer is a London born musician and artist with a background in costume. After studying spatial arts at Byam Shaw she worked as a freelance stylist, costumier and production manager. In July 2011 she set up Power Lunches - an independent music/performance/art space in Dalston, East London. Power Lunches helped provided a non-commercial focused facility for independent & experimental music/art performance. Articles and references to the venue can be found in Time Out, The Guardian, Vogue, The Dalstonist, Fader and Loud & Quiet.

Sians art practice to date has consisted of a performance/music cross over focusing on costume as a means to explore identity, social roles and audience expectation. In January 2013 she began experi- menting with costume and performance in the art/music project Ravioli Me Away with fellow artists Alice Theobald and Rosie Ridgeway. RMA operates as a live music performance project within the art envi- ronment and the group have performed at Wysing Arts Centre, Supersonic and Supernormal festivals, The South Bank center, Pilar Corrias, Lima Zulu, Xerox, Klein and Coma galleries, venues throughout Europe. They have also released records on labels Upset The Rhythm, Good Job and Neem.

ACID PRAWN is a new project that explores the relationship between art, music and fashion. Themes of the work include - performable clothing, the art project operating as a commercial entity, the sym- bolism and referencing within clothing from branding and materials to nostalgia, uniformity and irony, the costume as a token or relic of a performance, the sale of clothes as an art commodity - how this sits within the art world and the development of context and presentation in fashion and performance. Upcoming ACID PRAWN activity in 2016 includes the performance BLACK FELT FANTASY at the Meet Factory on the 18th February a DKUK solo show for Glasgow International opening on the 8th April, participation in the group show Neo Pagan Bitch Witch at Evelyn Place and a film screening at Xero Kline and Coma in London in May.

Sian Dorrer's residency is organized in collaboration with Are.
