Page 127 is a movement installation piece that seeks to transform the temporal space. A body embedded in an abstracted sculptural surrounding, consumed by crisp white paper that is neither falling nor rising, time standing still. The atmosphere continuously shifting as an interplay between reality and imagination unfolds the work itself. Sculptural form is ever-evolving whilst questions of femininity and the body as an object of desire are provoked in this performance, challenging the way we experience our own corporeality.
Questions of the objective observer and the experience of time are provoked in this durational performance where the audience is free to come in and out of the work as they please. The performance is an invitation to experience an alternative space, a new world that is both transient and fixed.
