Beacon Project

Bodies in Frienship (working title)

by Abi Hodson & Sierra Megas

Abi and Sierra are kindred friends, engaging with each other through creative practice from one ocean to another. This multi-media installation and screening is an expression of deep love through the exchange of letters, wearable art, and dance.

Long-distance friendship will always live in the liminal; a giggle on the phone, a surprise in the mail, excited anticipation on long flights. Abi and Sierra share their findings as they investigate intimacy with each other across time, memory and space. Through the tactile nature of movement and textiles, they create pockets, threads, possibilities where the physical intimacy of their friendship, if for a moment, might dwell.

Abi and Sierra are kindred friends, engaging with each other through creative practice across distance. Interwoven is an expression of deep love through the exchange of letters, wearable textiles, and dance.

Long-distance friendship will always live in the liminal; a giggle on the phone, a surprise in the mail, an excited anticipation on long flights. Abi and Sierra share their findings as they investigate intimacy with each other across time, memory and space. Through the tactile nature of movement and textiles, they create pockets, threads, possibilities where the physical intimacy of their friendship, if for a moment, might dwell.

This multi-media installation features a wearable textiles piece that has been dyed, embroidered, and altered; and a short video of collected movements and moments of Abi and Sierra as they interact with the wearable piece through its evolution. Their letters are kept private to honour the personal aspects of their research and exploration.

Come find this installation hanging in the window of Alteregos Cafe throughout Nocturne, and join Abi and Sierra for a virtual conversation exploring deep friendship, time and date TBD.
