Holly Craig with Benjamin Hancock and Janice Florence

Language Already in the Air #2

Imprints on the Unseeable Space (2021) is a sensory choreographic score by Holly Craig, which Benjamin Hancock and Janice Florence improvised responses to live, co-creating a movement conversation. This collaborative conversation forms a contribution to the exhibition “We get in touch with things at the point they break down // 
Even in the absence of spectators and audiences, dust circulates…” by Fayen d’Evie, with collaborators, contributors, and West Space community.

Originally intended to take place within the gallery of West Space, due to Covid lockdowns, this event occurred virtually without audience or spectators; a persistent circulation of dust beyond the gallery walls, even when plans and structures break down.

Benjamin Hancock is a solo and collaborative performance artist, who situates their work within and across the dance, drag, and contemporary art communities. He is interested in how a subjective body receives, interprets, processes, and translates information.
