About the Show

In the body of work that is ‘O is for Orange’  there’s a collaborative meditation on just the outer skin of the fruit body, to contemplate the aspect of touch in care work. The orange is chosen for how it gets held and peeled. For how its shape reminds the hands to create an enclosure, a coop. The relationship between the hands and the orange forms a skin to skin relationship. There isn’t a hierarchy when we speak of touch, but perhaps one does emerge when we hold. Is the skin the protector or are the hands, as they unravel it? A group of care-workers and parents lend their voice and perspective.

This show was made possible because of the support and generosity of the amazing people at PosAbilities.
