The mover’s attention is arrested by a familiar sequence of painted interiors, captivated by the simplicity of the spaces, the hush evoked by the monochromatic scheme, and the intimacy of approaching the woman unseen. The mover is aware of viewing the paintings from her seat and yet simultaneously standing in the witness place of the artist. This experience evokes a coolness throughout the body reminiscent of opening a door not long after waking, the body standing at the meeting place of the outside and the inside. This clean, uncluttered, uncoloured awareness gives rise to the experience of three being in the paintings: the artist, the woman and I.
