If matter can never be subtracted from this earth - how is it sustained? In what form is the trace and transfer of this energy transformed? How does great force extracted from the dynamic weight of a body - expel and graft onto allied materials/spaces?
Within this work - body disappears, objects disappear, gestures disappear, and assemblages at large change form. Whilst holding the sentiment that no amount of mass or energy dispels, but merely transmutes and recycles - echoes of this impetus can be felt on a molecular level, extending beyond the parameters of the gallery. Past the barriers of the performers’ and materials’ own epidermis. Manifesting in the most unlikely combustions and ruinations. This in turn tightens the space of relations between all materials and bodies within the space, whilst simultaneously suggesting the propensity for vestiges to be felt beyond the site
