AN INDEX OF KINDNESS
JULY 23 – AUGUST 15 2009
AN INDEX OF KINDNESS is an ongoing project which sets out to map identity, in the literal sense. If it starts with the mapping of things that are alike, in the most simple sense, it moves quickly into how an idea (a source text, really, e.g. ‘horse’, ‘emotion’) can be identified in different space. But what does it lose as it is enacted in space to space? What does it gain? The INDEX is merely the framing device the name of the quest. This quest may never end, may never be satisfied can the text ever be happy, come to rest? The source text of Nathalie Sarraute’s play SILENCE goes some way to answering these questions.
