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.
