Riveted is an inhabited space that is organized around an enigmatic sound. A complex rhythm sets its structure, a short and abstract composition stretches out in to a longer duration, like some germinal thought that develops in to a larger and deeper reflection. In a similar vein, a big reddish material hangs on the wall. Gwenneth talks about tracing a ‘mark’ and I understand it as a stepping stone. Like a solid certainty, it is pinned to it on its upper section, unfolding freely downwards, perhaps yearning for an unexpected fate. It therefore condenses its origins and all its possible outcomes.

    Choreography (for Gallery 2, ACCA) is part of a collaborative research into the presence of the body in processes of documenting and viewing, outside of the representational or figurative. In 2006, the collaboration set about developing a choreographic work that did not engage a dancer to perform a choreographic score in front of spectators. In Choreography choreography is conceived as a spatial configuration in which viewing itself manifests. A movement pathway, including varying gazes and postures, is notated as 60 specific viewpoints in sequence. Whilst it is possible to compile a sense of the spatial or architectural facts of the dance studio through the installation, the join from one photograph to the next is hardly seamless. On the contrary, it stutters, vibrates, oscillates.
