Water is elusive, invisible and protean. Moving Water is a participatory event that offers a bodily, sensory experience of this precious element. Sculptural vessels containing water and giving it shape are made of sensuous materials such as glass, metal, rawhide and ceramic or found-objects such as shell and bone.Participants explore the vessels and the water in them, moving at will around a room filled with sound and light. An intimate, playful exchange emerges in this collective act of attention and empathy that reveals how our bodies are also vessels of water.Water leaks, spills and pours in an unfolding poetic narrative about water qualities, ubiquity, use, and loss. www.artintouch.co.uk

The event on June 19 is a private view for Rethinking the Senses, an AHRC-funded project of Centre for the Study of the Senses, which brings together neuroscientists, psychologists and philosophers to investigate multisensory perception in everyday experiences: www.thesenses.ac.uk.

Visions/Visiones

Visions/Visiones: Cuzco, Peru, January-February, 2014
The exhibition was in the Qorikancha, the historic center of the Inca empire. The Spanish built the Convent of Santo Domingo above Inca stone temples surrounding a large courtyard. Organized by Boston Sculptors Gallery member Nora Valdez, it showcased sculptures by members of BSG and Peruvian artists in the stunning open-to-the-air gallery. I made Rio, a site-responsive sculpture during the two-week residency in Cuzco.
Rio turned the arch of the Spanish colonial architecture upside-down, reflecting the forced fusion of cultures in Peru and Inca symbolism by sewing white tracing paper to black foil with black string in a lightning pattern. A golden string meanders across the field.
A drawing made of the same materials as the sculpture was part of the concurrent exhibition of drawings by the same group of artists, Transcripts/Transcripciones, at Galeria Instituto Cultural Peruano Norteamericano del Cusco, curated by Jose Luis Morales Sierra.
