Except The Mirror exhibition talk

Talk yesterday with Alice Walton at Format Festival for the Except The Mirror exhibition which I curated and features the work of Sophie Clements, Annie MacDonell, Tom Lovelace, Richard Paul, Melanie Stidolph and Alice Walton. Alice and I talked about and invited audience participation into the concept of The Double in artist’s practice.  Our starting point for the talk was this quote from Emma Cocker ‘An action is begun before knowing what it might enable. A conversation is initiated in the absence of intention; attention given to the pauses and durations breathed between the words.’
