Gesture – Artist in Residence

Gesture is an exhibition and series of performances that will take place in Corby, Northamptonshire, from September 2012 to June 2013. Comprising work in a range of media – including live art, video and performance – Gesture will explore ways in which relationships and social interaction can be signified, controlled and communicated through the conduit of the hand.
