Gesture Manifest is a Liquid Architecture project for BLINDSIDE Sound Series 2016, curated by Anabelle Lacroix and Andrew Tetzlaff featuring new work byCarolyn Eskdale, Bridie Lunney with performance byShelley Lasica and Clare Milledge and sound byTom Smith.

If our repertoire of bodily gestures is a language, then our discrete movements and poses are words and sentences. This exhibition articulates the relationships between these words-movements and their surroundings – how
a grammar becomes physical.

Giving voice to the inaudible. Marking, staining, rubbing against and pressing onto the world. Generating little records of a presence.

Through Gesture Manifest, objects are imbued with new velocity: seconds and minutes of touch help us perceive months and years; material that was static is now
slow-motion. This exhibition offers situations as
‘gestural events’.

What was fixed is in-motion. What was silent is speaking.
