Patrick Staff
To Those in Search of Immunity

Observers' Walks



Patrick Staff works with film, installation, dance and performance to investigate dissent, labour and the queer body.

Using research into the ecology and botanical formations of Calton Hill, To Those In Search of Immunity melds audio essay, memoir, and story to examine illness, health, and both the social and individual body. Exploring ideas of immunity and the possible effects of ingestion of substances on the body, Patrick’s new Observers’ Walk reflects social concerns such as sex, gender and the construction of community.
