Westspace presents Fayen d’Evie’s exhibition We get in touch with things at the point they break down // Even in the absence of spectators and audiences, dust circulates…

Working as both artist and curator, d’Evie advocates for radical accessibility within the exhibition format. The exhibition brings together a sweeping cast of collaborators, including artists, theorists, dancers, conservators, academics and activists. Through multiple collaborations and across multiple mediums, including sculpture, performance, tactile prints, publishing, and video, We Get in Touch… centres language and translation. Language is understood as gestural and spatial, encompassing dance, signing, touch and vibration.

With the onsite installation open to public until 5th of September, the exhibition is accompanied by writing and digital works published on West Space’s Offsite platform.

Fayen d’Evie’s work, created in collaboration with Benjamin Hancock, is included in This is a Poem exhibition and is currently on view at Buxton Contemporary and on the large screen above the museum’s entrance.
