Patchwork

2020

Under, around, through, off, and repeat. The action of knitting repeated by bodies in space. 

 

This project stitches together movement material from past works and reformats them, sort of like a photo album or indeed a patchwork quilt. The work which is part exhibition, part site-specific live performance, and part interactive workshop was created during the lockdown period following the outbreak of COVID-19, from the comfort of my own home. As part of the project I recruited 30 knitting volunteers as well as the 3 dancers, to create the ever expanding patchwork quilt. For more details regarding the work, and it's ongoing develop please visit the following link.
