Developing Thread and Word


So the work progresses in many different ways.


Quipucamayocs
I have been busy in the studio making 'Quipucamayocs', a series of artefacts using the ropes knotted by walkers during the development of the walks culminating in Thread and Word at Espacio Gallery last March.



Thread and Room
@AllanStruthers who participated in the Thread and Word walk at Espacio has collaborated with Robbie and Hannah (also on the walk)  to make  Thread and Room. 

"Having been inspired by the use of movement and thread as a method of communication, we, over the course of 2 hours, silently engaged in a dance that began to explore the inside our house. It was an event that gave a kind of language to the physical space between us. For this we used thread, coloured paper, rubber bands, and the music of Julia-Holter

It's amazing how ideas develop and grow through artistic collaboration. For more about Thread and word and Allan's intervention, Seen not Heard:  the Choice of Listening to Objects, http://www.elspeth-billie-penfold.com/thread-and-word-texts-used-in-walk


I am looking forward to a trip to Edinburgh tomorrow, April 24th with Renee Rilexie, curator of the Artists Pool, https://www.theartistspool.co.uk.

We will be meeting with artists, visiting Dundas st Gallery and Inverleith House and preparing for another walk with Thread and Word in July.  Let me know if you'd like to  collaborate.
