RESEARCH + PRACTICE
Combining practices of large-scale architectural interventions, sculpture, jewellery and durational performance, Bridie Lunney acknowledges the body as a conduit between our psychological selves and the physical world. Performative and sculptural gestures in the works suggest reconfiguration of hierarchical relationships between architectural space, objects and the body.
