Description Performance events staged by five visual arts practitioners over five days. Two were durational works. The title suggests the conceptual concerns of the collection. "Language within this series is directed toward a form of notation embracing movement, time and imagery that lies outside verbal notation. Action in performance, that is, gesture sets in time, layered by aspects of content, provide an arena of unexplored analysis."
