A Futile Response
Melissa Edwards & Mira Oosterweghel
‘A Futile Response’ is a collaborative performance between Melissa Edwards and Mira Oosterweghel attempting to open up the material and discursive spaces between their practices, using the body as a point of departure and investigation. Utilising the futile repetitive gestures and actions in response to the local architecture surrounding SEVENTH Gallery the artists seek to question how bodies are affected by space and place. Combining humour and absurdity with repetitive futile actions presented in a seamlessly looped video, ‘A Futile Response’ emphasises the machine-like behaviour of learning and labour.
