UP, DOWN AND HOLD FOR 30
9 - 26 Oct 2019
Opening Night | Thursday 10 Oct, 6pm–8pm
We move our body through, in, out, around, over and under spaces. We forget what was in the past and the impressions that we placed of ourselves onto our surroundings. These traces (in reference to a mark, object or other indication of the existence or passing of something) that are left are physical and psychological, visible and invisible. What are the implications of contact? A trace of energy? But then, contact – what are the boundaries of contact? Your hand touching my hand? Me looking at you, looking at me, looking at you. My vision touches the subject in my sight. My grasp on honey – something unattainable and uncontrollable? An embrace. What is it to manipulate and bear power on materials which contradictorily actually have the power over you?
