to feel something tipping, under and towards you

  • Film
A composite image including peach and pink plastic sheets, and a human arm reaching across the surface of a violet rock.
to feel something tipping, under and towards you, Es Morgan.

Es Morgan’s intimate online film explores trans embodiment, visibility, being with others and being alone. 

Separated by distance, how might we still feel our bodies meet, or even merge? Es Morgan’s film moves through breath-like cycles in a continuous loop, interweaving textured poetry with movement.   

Age Recommendation: 12+

The work is audio described and captioned.

Join Es Morgan in conversation with Amy Bell on Thursday 24 June.
