The gleaners, and: ritual for signaled bodies performs at the edges between the body and the external, oscillating and eroding those boundaries. A ritual for creating new worlds and situations for fragmented bodies, signals pass through the joints of animated and genderless bodies and body parts entangling the body-signal-actions pathway both materially and conceptually, as these control mechanisms interfere with pre-animated content. Perpetually shifting surfaces and skins serve as sites of projection and interference, contributing to the further ‘queering’ of the state of these bodies and fragments. The signals both generate sounds and compel movement, i.e. the making of the images, and the body further challenges the stability and integrity of the space. At the edge between crisis and satisfaction, the work adopts the role of Millet’s own The Gleaners, making do on the boundary between sustenance and the devoid.
