Thanks to dance artists Neil Callaghan, Saffy Setohy & Joanna Young for their generous contributions to this event and to all those who came along and took part. The stitching and re-activation of the gloves eventually formed a strange and wonderful blanket/shroud/caul, which we moved with/in with those assembled. A motile, generative thing it will now have future lives as choreographic object/actant. Photos by Jack Wrigley
‘Tectonic Skin: touching, receiving mingling. Whirling eddies of wind between my fingers. Eagles there soaring, surfing through the gaps between pronged fingers. Holding Absence. There is so much pleasure in awareness. There is so much pleasure in awareness. Ah.’
My left thumb is slightly small than the right. I used to suck the left one as a child with the index finger hooked over my nose. I did this until I was 11. A comforting.
