The results are explorations and expressions of the reciprocal dialogue that exists between the inner world of the human psyche and the outside world of our immediate surroundings.

Sylvie Tourangeau

Axe and ski former It is usually through simple interactions with ordinary trinkets that I invent rituals of circumstance. I attempt to bring the powers of transformation into being and to transmit them through various forms of human presence such as integrity, intimacy, the added value produced by the meeting of differences, social belonging and the envolving power of our perception of the present moment.

Simon Whitehead

Axe and ski former Movement artist Simon Whitehead works from his base in rural West Wales. He has developed a body of work from the pedestrian; encountering situations at walking pace his works are place sensitive and often involve a process of ritual reconstruction through the body, live performance, dance, sound and sensory media.
