In relation to their performance and installation work RIMA by SQUIDSILO at the Blackbox on Thursday 6 August, Julie Vulcan and Ashley Scott discuss the three-year journey of RIMA - how ideas, research and physical action can change the intensity and the commitment to the original idea. A Flesh Word | A Blood Word is borrowed from the autobiographical writing of Lena Constante – a Romanian artist and political prisoner during the 50’s and 60’s. It has come to symbolise an element of the journey of body, words and space - from the mind, to the flesh, to the blood and back again.

Working with details from her research into political prisoners in solitary confinement, Vulcan developed a number of physical responses, which complement and underlie the text explored in RIMA. The durational part of the work makes explicit strategies for survival within an interminable passing of time.

The panel discussion with Julie Vulcan and Ashley Scott is led by Uros Cvoro, joined by CCAP researchers Timothy Gregory, Rochelle Haley and Astrid Lorange

RIMA by SQUIDSILO and A Flesh Word | A Blood Word are part of the CCAP program.
