‘THE FEEL OF THE TINIEST LATCH HAS REMAINED IN OUR HANDS.

A performance talk by artist Emma Bush on Saturday 8 September at Aller Park Hexagon Studios. Buy festival pass today to participate.

‘The feel of the tiniest latch has remained in our hands,’ is a line from Bachelard* used as provocation for writing investigating ageing, memory and materiality placing centrally the notion of memory shared across bodies, times and places: “in which the human is always intermeshed with the more than human world.’’ (Alaimo) Beginning in remembering with my mother’s Kathleen Patricia Bush (80) and Gail Marie Gauden (75); a reminiscence project foregrounding an active relationship with place and ecological roots.

*Gaston Bachelard -The Poetics of Space (1969)
