MINOR MOVEMENTS: A RETHINKING OF AN EXHIBITION (2019) is one of the outcomes of the 'Immediations' projects by Canadian Senselab: Laboratory for Thought in Motion. During a residency at La Trobe Art Institute in Bendigo, Australia, I had the honor to participate in the continuous formation of this exhibition.
In this exhibition-as-performance, minor movements are explored and presented as the tiny perceptions that are; ‘not ours to make so much as ours to attune to'.
"To me, attunement is not about the reinforcing or the renunciation of subject-object relations.
To me, attunment is an increased awareness of subject-object reciprocity from which new levels of empathy arise."
