On Aura

6 - 7 pm, April 26, School of Visual Arts

2019

A gesture has been made for each letter of the alphabet. A section of text about air, from Luce Irigaray’s book, The Way of Love, has been translated into these gestures letter by letter. A few flowers are present that move from air currents generated by visitors. This piece was a response to the spaces we share and the air between us.

SOUND: Aurora by Jon Hassell

“Air lets someone be in the present, enter into presence in the present, which emptiness does not allow to humans. And sounds circulate in it at a more accessible rhythm and with more agreeable tones than in the ether. Respecting the air between us and drawing from it in the present a part of the flesh of our words grants an approach that nourishes the existence of each one, that allows each to be and to become.”

Luce Irigaray, The Way of Love
