Fluid edges took place in the vast St Pauls Church in Hammersmith. A large black box was suspended above the centre of the space which was then opened to flood the space with blue pigment and feathers.
'Fluid Edges grew out of our experiences of Falling: faliing in the pain of a loss and the passing of time, falling in and out of love, fallen women in exile from a centre'

‘The mirror blocks our energies, freezes us in our tracks, clips our wings’ (Irigaray)

what my lips were keeping is put into motion, into action, edges which touch each other, communicate with each other, without privileging one or the other’ (Irigaray)

Falling Sky/Ashes of Blue
Foetus Bird on an Edge

rough Edges
the Oracle of the Willow
If the feet touched the sky
In a miracle of dreaming
and becoming ones own'
