|A YOUNG GIRL SLIPPING|
|1998-01-07 - 23|
CCA Project Gallery presented a new work by Siobhan Liddell.
“When you slip, it is an accident, an action you cannot prevent.
This incident of unforeseeable change hits you in the face and you end up on your bottom. On the one hand, this title is a small piece of, perhaps, a larger narrative, on the other, it is an evocation of something entirely psychological.
It happened in a dream that a young girl was slipping. She slipped over the edge into a large body of water.
Later on dream time the child was seen under the water stroking a very soft light. I instinctively wanted to use this title to allow language to open up a psychological space for the viewer/reader. The title is read but not seen, something like watching with your heart and listening with your eyes.”
Siobhan Liddell stayed at CCA Kitakyushu as Professor of Research Program from December 8th to 27th, 1997.
