“…cloth dripping…” (Sappho, fragment 119).

Sappho was an ancient poet whose words were meant to be sung. Cloth Dripping weaves together sculptural and sonic elements inspired by fragments of Sappho’s poetry to create a continuous fabric of a multi-sensorial environment. Ruinous forms of terra cotta structures will be situated among the weavings with traces of fingerprints, gestures and lost scripts. In this exhibition, the audience is welcomed into a liminal space where traces of the past echo the fragments of her poems and the ruinous materiality of Grisey’s sculptural work.
