String of Leading Sinew Performances:
Sunday June 25, 2 – 3 pm
Tuesday June 27, 4:30 – 5:30

String of Leading Sinews reintroduces the relationship between an individual and a couch. The couch is gutted to hold a resonant chamber for a stringed instrument. Viewers are invited to play the work and explore in dialogue with an object so intrinsically coded with sentimental value.
