Mouth to Mouth

Share a breath with me. Receive a gift from an unknown other.

This one-to-one interaction celebrates breath as mutual interdependence and cycle of gift exchange.

Mouth to Mouth considers breath as cycle of giving and receiving, air shared with the other beings of our world. Inviting the viewer to exchange a gift of breath for a similar gift from an unknown other, it evokes both the transience of breath and the permanence of the trace left in the marking of the gift.

I'm pleased to be presenting Mouth to Mouth at the 'On Taking Care' symposium organised by Rosemary Lee and Martin Welton on 1 December 2012

Bodies in Space - Tim Jeeves/Rachel Gomme

As part of his Giving in to Gift project, in The Horse's Teeth, Tim Jeeves gifts a performance to each of six artists. I was presented with my gift, the one-to-one performance 'Bodies in Space', on 28 November at the Bluecoat in Liverpool.
