An affective encounter can be explained in another affective encounter – living near each other, living together. What are these social relations that we explain with space and time? What happens when we are close, or only know of each other from a distance? What is possible?
Inspired by the systems of support produced by Will Munro that continue to proliferate throughout his community, Emma Hedditch approaches her project for the AGYU vitrines in relation to agency and affect – and the intimacy and hope that remains after watching the classic Toronto lesbian film I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing.
Emma Hedditch is an artist, writer and a volunteer for the Cinenova Working Group, London. Currently, she is working with Ian White and Jimmy Robert at the Dutch Art Institute in the programme ‘Practice- Theatre’ curated by If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want to Be Part of Your Revolution and is part of the exhibitionCommunity Without Propinquity at the Milton Keynes Gallery.
