Touching Gravity

30.05.2018 to 22.06.2018

A breath and the sound of water is what first touches our ears and our whole body, a tent that seems to have bodies in a state of enjoyment or suffering, bodies that are caressed or dragged with a golden silk, but we look up and it would seem to be a waterfall that solidifies as it approaches us, and we can enter the tent, search those bodies, but they are not there. In motion, that tent seems to be floating in the water, seems to swim like an anemone, breathes ..

Touching gravity is an installation that included digital prints, a photolithography portfolio, a silk tent, poetry at the level of our feet and photographs where touch, light, organic and inorganic are protagonists without eclipsing each other. A collaboration between Liz Ingram and Bernd Hildebrandt who, while they lived in Buenos Aires for 4 months, toured the city and created from the reflection on their bodies in relation to that city.
A project that talks about the perception of oneself in relation to the other, about care, life and death.

Excerpts from the poetry of Touching the gravity:
what voice is there between a hand and its fingers / what mitigates an elemental and fugitive breach / what places pressure within an oyster’s realm / what pinches shadows, tempting age not to forget / what seizes upon voices still listening to scars / what speculates upon every circumcision of a finger tip / what listens between lips and tongues / what tempts the land with rain / gravity dissolves light into sand / gravity wakes every new moon / gravity picks pendant fruit / gravity speaks through the silence of touch
