Day 6 - Zierle & Carter

Zierle & Carter - Spilling Pearls – Cycles of Nurture and Deceit

Positioned to fail, knives stab into backs. The gaze returned through hand bound mirrors, reaching and stretching beyond boundaries. The search for the other initiates the dance.

The ground is laid for a live relationship dynamic to surface and unfold. A silent conversation follows; a precarious territorial dance on plates circles around the void within. A continuous investigation pivots between hostility, mechanisms of deceit, resistance, futile attempts at gifting and receiving, tension, tenderness, care, and an underlying endeavour for harmony.

‘Spilling Pearls – Cycles of Nurture and Deceit’ explores the restrictive nature of co-dependency in human relationships through a cyclical unfolding process of inhibited exchanges between two people, highlighting conflict and unvoiced tension, searching for ways to diffuse and bridge the distance that separates them in order to give light to new possibilities of coexistence. As the dialogue deepens, a womb space is carved out, emptiness draws the outer perceptions inwards and a new paradigm emerges.
