Until they feel – ahead of them – a barrier

Until they feel – ahead of them – a barrier is a reflection on the the human body as a threshold between interior and exterior space. Taking place in the post-industrial estuary landscape, the figures, like the architecture, appear as ghosts caught in cycles of unstable and unproductive gesture. Both they and the landscape appear at a limit, on thresholds of action and inaction, of holding and releasing, falling and walking, expectation and arrival. All elements struggle to remain visible. There is a sense of attempting to see the unseen, the bodies inhabiting conditions of the site and the site exerting pressure upon the bodies.
