  1. I am delighted to come across Amy Houghton’s work again. I love the idea of the typewriter and the slow erasure through typing.. mimicking what happens when ‘capturing’ memory, where something gets hammered out, that was once held ‘inside’. I find this artist’s use of animation/movement/performance activating the physicality of visually seductive objects always strikes interesting dialogues.

    • I am really quite overwhelmed by the impact of Amy’s typewriter piece, which you describe so eloquently…’the hammering out’ – is so important…that it vibrates through the body and the sound it makes is captured in the moment of time and a process. I think it has proved a really important thinking through point in the exhibition and one which will provoke new thought and debate…
