Talbot Rice Gallery is delighted to be presenting Walk, Hands, Eyes (Edinburgh), an ongoing performative walking practice devised by French artist and choreographer Myriam Lefkowitz.

About

Over the course of an hour’s silent walk a participant and a guide form an immersive relationship with their surroundings. The participant has their eyes closed, but is asked at times to briefly open them to create a unique mental snapshot.

This work has been performed around the world for more than 10 years – in Paris, Medellin, Venice, New York, Dhaka – and is never the same. It is a unique and special experience that complements the aims of The Extended Mind by raising awareness about the embodied and situated nature of cognition as we navigate the world.

There are 3 walks per day: 11am, 12.15pm and 1.30pm.
