To Know Your Fingers & Toes
Alyra Bartasek, Jessie Imam, Rosina Prestia
Bringing together three collaborating artists from various disciplines, To Know Your Fingers & Toes uses sculpture, installation, jewellery, video and audio to explore the essential role of the body in the engagement with the spaces it inhabits. Bartasek, Imam and Prestia all use their own bodies, and often the bodies of the viewers, to create and activate their work in a way that extends the possibilities and reach of the body. In this way the body is a tool, a material, a mould, a site, a point of reference, and an (un)framing device.
The works include interactive materials such as beeswax, charcoal, jewellery and audio; creating an interactive, immersive bodily experience in the gallery.
