The mud formed a finger, pointed – 2014


The mud formed a finger, pointed was presented off-site as a new film installation by the ARKA Group (Ben Jeans Houghton & Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau) at Sutton House, Homerton. Created in collaboration with dancer and choreographer Nicole Vivien Watson, The mud formed a finger, pointed is a study of the human body as an uncanny object that oscillates between figuration and abstraction, body and material, depicting an object becoming human, a human becoming an object and the protean states between.
