A collaborative installation by Sarah Fitzgerald and Jan Handel

Using the long, linear, spatial volume of Articulate, Sarah Fitzgerald and Jan Handel will hold a visual conversation.

The ebb and flow, back and forth and to and fro of a verbal discussion will be interpreted through large-scale built floor works and coloured hanging shapes. These forms will call and respond to each other spatially, creating quiet interludes and noisy exchanges. The forms will metaphorically reflect important aspects of conversation such as connection, negotiation, space, rhythm and support.
Over-laying these forms will be a soundscape - our conversing voices, words unintelligible, rising and falling, further filling the space.

Visitors will be invited to walk amongst the conversation, immersed in the forms and colours while engaging in their own dialogue, navigating their paths as allowed by the configuration of the works.
