“This House, my Body” is a cross-artform installation work staged in an empty building. The project will explore notions of human bodies as houses in all their diversity and vulnerability in an immersive space to stir imagination, contemplation and memory. Within the building, a room of poets sharing their thoughts on embodiment as a tenancy, images and objects, projections, sounds and spaces that evoke curiosity, disquiet and reflection as we journey through ideas about the precarious nature of living in our bodily houses.
A collaboration between artist Rachael Guy and videographer Leonie van Eyk This House, My Body will generate new insights into what it means to inhabit the spaces of our existence within the intimate domains of both our houses and our embodiment. Local writers will be joining us as we ask them to create poems on this theme for the event.
This House, My Body – a suite of spaces, that speaks of being love and loss, infirmity and transience. Join us as we explore the unexpected corners of exsitence, the empty bed, rooms of memory – spaces where bodies and houses congregate, merge and fall apart.
