Summary:
At the heart of this series is a curiosity for form. As a collection of works The Curiosities looks at the architecture of the human body - its intricate structure and evolution, and physical and emotional complexities. Reading the Body Installation, duration: 5 minute loop  A single screen / 2 channel installation that juxtaposes the poem Reading the Body, (by New Zealand Poet Laureate Jenny Bornholdt), and film (by Sue Healey). The installation offers a cinematic and spatial rendering of the poem, through choreographed movement and animation. What are the collaborative narrative possibilities between text and movement? How can poetry influence the 'reading' of the movement language?  Exhibitions: Gesture: Performance | Film | Dance, ReelDance Installations #4 , IO Myers Studio, UNSW MIC Toi Rerehiko Auckland, New Zealand Oct-Dec 2010 Alma & Ena video, duration: 5 mins  2 sisters. 2 variations, premiered in 2011.
