Abdominal Envelope continues Irwin’s investigations into the geometric dimensions of human movement and habitation and the metaphorical potential of the membrane.

Irwin creates large patchwork textile ‘bubbles’ that are inhabited by performers. These bubbles wander around gallery spaces, expanding, transforming and imploding, during performances that last for a number of hours.

FREE EVENT – RSVP Thursday 12 September
