I’m honoured that my work was selected by Curators Dr Glenn Adamson, of the Victoria & Albert Museum,
and Priya Khanchandani as a winner of the Word Art Collective digital competition.
Below is the exhibited work.
30s exposure photograph + 30s Video
The french expression “avoir un poil dans la main” means to be lazy, or literally to have a hair growing in your hand.
Because us French people tend not to pronounce the letter H, it becomes To ‘ave R (air) in your hand when translated in English.
Dancing is playing with air.
The photograph exposed is a 30s exposure of a choreography very slowly drawing a R with my hand.
The video shows a random-looking dance, so slow that it’s hardly recognisable as a letter
until we see the photograph next to it.
