Walking Bundles: Doll Bodies at the Embodied Cartographies Exhibition

by James on May 16th, 2017

Salisbury Plain Doll Bundle
I am showing 4 of my Walking Bundles which have been built around the bodies of dolls, at the Embodied Cartographies exhibition, at the Walcot Chapel in Bath later this month, as part of Fringe Art Bath. Alongside the Bundles themselves will a photographic print of each of them, on-site and in-progress.

‘Embodied Cartographies’ is about walking – as praxis, mark-making, performance, choreography and the philosophy of perambulating. It comprises an exhibition, walks, workshops, performances, presentations, talks, a book launch and a symposium (held in collaboration with Bath Spa University). The works included engage with, document, inscribe, mark, perceive and understand the walking act with an in-depth engagement into how walking can inform a sense of cartography as ‘embodied.’

Fay Stevens, Curator
