The practice of French-American, Paris-based artist Myriam Lefkowitz (b. 1980) addresses the relationship between movement and the gaze, or lack thereof. This has manifested in her on-going investigations in Walk, Hands, Eyes (Biel/Bienne). Here a trained dancer guides a ‘viewer’ along a specific trajectory while asking them to keep their eyes closed, opening them only on command. Radically enhancing one's senses, the performance redistributes one’s usual perception of the city to the entirety of the body.
