With meditative and mantric monologues, musical performances and installations rich in materials, Scottish artist Mariechen Danz seeks the knowledge and power contained inside each human body.

As the lips move, tendons relax and tense again. Electricity pulses through causeways built from a thousand riches gathered from each corner of the universe. Saliva coils in liquid spirals. The gastric acids, turned into vapor, float by. A colony of bacteria slowly chips away at the marble walls of a tooth, altering its shape microscopically. Out of this multiverse a vibration of the wind is born and they name her “voice”. She gathers her poems from the darkness of the liver, listens to the whispered blue rhymes of melancholic lungs and the heart’s demands, spreading infinite.
