Daria Martin @ Maureen Paley Gallery

30 January 2016 - 13 March 2016

At The Threshold (2015) is the second of three short films inspired by Daria Martin’s research into a form of heightened physical sensitivity called mirror-touch synaesthesia. People with this neurological condition feel a palpable sensation of touch on their own bodies when they see another person, or even an object, being touched. Some synaesthetes also experience mirror-pain, mirror-movement, mirror-breathing or even mirror-emotion – extending the sharing of senses to a blurring between self and other. Martin aims to capture some of these feelings and ideas in the structure, dialogue and images that form At The Threshold, as well as through it’s articulation in the medium of 16mm film.
