Yvon Bonenfant

Bonenfant directed a process during which the ensemble Galloping Cuckoos explored a range of skin sensations associated with attempted ex-traumatic states and then translated these into postures and ‘walks’. These were then walked through three cities: Paris, London and Cardiff, suggesting other ways of somatic being to passersby, sometimes almost invisibly.

A work in sound • sound art: Ali Cocks

Ali Cocks

Semiotic Stomach features Ali Cocks’ digestive sounds recorded internally with a hydrophone. These recordings were then incorporated into a larger sonic narrative: a human and British journey through birth, infancy, town nightlife, marginalised queer city happenings and normative supermarket visits. The turmoil present in the digestive sounds can be heard as a response to the narrative of the social body.
