Emmie McLuskey's project explores interactions in and between bodies, considering the systems that control and record them.
In February 2019 Emmie will present an exhibition of new artwork, a book and a series of events as part of Collective’s Satellites Programme. Over the last year, she has worked with writer Freya Field-Donovan and choreographer Janice Parker to realise the project.
