A collaboration with choreographer Riccardo Buscarini, which featured selected sculptures and objects as well as new sound works.


One sound work was developed in response to Buscarini's practised language of movement, this was performed live at the exhibition's opening on 11 December 2015.

The works, along with traces of the performance, were arranged in the glass cabinets in Summerhall's Laboratory Gallery, offering an archival as well as experimental focus.


A suite of performances with readings and movement were presented during a culminating event on 5 March 2016. Audience members wore archive gloves, read from printed texts, and handled sculptures from the exhibition.

Inside a haze-filled glass cabinet, Riccardo moved to low-frequency sound and recorded looped voices I had produced. The correspondence between sound and movement was refined during the exhibition install, as different frequencies were adapted to Riccardo
