23 March–28 April

Communicating Vessels is a newly commissioned work consisting of writing, video, and sculpture produced in collaboration between Annie MacDonell and Maïder Fortuné following the premise that water will always find its level, the term Communicating Vessels describes the way liquid moves between conjoined containers: gravity and pressure conspire to keep the surfaces aligned, pulling the shared liquid back and forth until the separate vessels come into balance. like the relationship between a mother and a child or fluid passed from mouth to mouth, meaning, intention, and understanding constantly flow back and forth between us. it is the fundamental connectedness of all things, how ideas migrate and shapes shift, and the possibility of individuation without individualism. Bringing together fictional narrative, personal anecdote, and private conversation, Communicating Vessels explores how we infect and influence each other in ways that are both positive and negative, yet always urgent and necessary.
