STILL LIFE is a zine about relationships and configurations in which one person is still while others are not. Or where one person is passive and others are active. It’s about how we put ourselves in other people’s hands. Or how we are put in other people’s hands. It’s about care and power and vulnerability and agency. And other things not so clearly named.It’s about the different kinds of knowledge that people have about their own and other people’s bodies. And the kind of philosophical and political understandings woven into that knowledge.
It is part of Configurations a series of works by Hamish MacPherson which orbits around the idea of care as an aesthetic, choreographic and political practice. As a negotiation of constantly fluctuating needs, capacities and interests. And in particular, care that is disengaged, reluctant or otherwise complicated and with problems.
This event is supported by Arts Council England and Sadlers Wells
