Touch explores themes of humanity and transcendence – consisting of an installation of unfired full-bodied clay figures and video from American artist Corinne Beardsley. The concept to create and sculpt unfired clay figures came from the artist’s experience of working as a massage practitioner. The artist states, “during this work I often think about my client’s mortality and vulnerability. They have come for healing, to restore their bodies, and let go of what they are holding onto.” By creating these clay figures, Beardsley is able to unleash the energy that was transferred from her client to herself. Whilst producing these figures, Beardsley focuses on the energy and spirit of specific clients.
