Sensation is a circuit of experience, a circuit of the felt traveling in and adjacent to the body., 2022
From the Toronto Biennial of Art description:
In August 2021 and continuing to December 2021, the artist Tanya Lukin Linklater began a process of collaborative choreography—albeit one that was geographically dispersed—with four dancers over ten weeks: Ivanie Aubin-Malo and Hanako Hoshimi-Caines from Montréal and Ceinwen Gobert and Emily Law, based in Toronto. Tanya initially composed and sent concise texts and instructions (which can be understood as scores) to prompt the dancers’ physical investigations. The dancers in turn produced short works for the camera with recorders provided by the artist. The work takes place where each performer lives: in Toronto and in Montréal. Formed in response to the pandemic moment, Tanya describes the process as one intended to be sustainable and a means to support collective well-being despite the alienation of distance.
