Her words my body | etching, drypoint, performance photo collage 22x17cm | 2014 | words by Angela Gardner
This is a collaboration with Queensland poet Angela Gardner. I sent gestural drawings to Gardner, and she responded with words. I put the words on a costume. We had a back and forth exchange in this fashion. I didn’t always understand her poems. One time, I pointed to some words and asked what they meant. She pointed to a bunch of scribble and asked what it meant. At that moment I understood words as gesture.
