Sep 11, 2019 7:00pm - 9:00pm talk/event
At the point where the body and the rock meet, where the corporeal and the lithic intertwine, this thin space is where it can be found.
 
in the midst of her elemental composition* is an evening exploring interconnections between the human and the lithic, with a focus on the artist’s own body and its geological heritage in the Western Isles. Considering the thin space between these bodies and the points at which they meet, AJ Stockwell’s research concentrates on how this relationship can be articulated and in what tongue. Drawing upon a text written and translated from Michel Serres as a starting point, this new body of research is presented through sculpture, performance and audio. Water is central to connecting the corporeal with the lithic and as part of the performance the audience are invited to drink together from water collected in North Uist by the artist, which has filtered through the ancient rock body of this land. As the sun sets the performance progresses into a deep listening environment, where the audio piece is presented.
This is free to attend. Booking is required via Eventbrite. www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/jerwood-staging-series-2019-aj-stockwell-in-the-midst-of-her-elemental-composition-tickets-66203062141
