2 November 2019 – 1 February 2020

Artist Myriam Lefkowitz’s project ‘Walk, Hands, Eyes’ examines the relationship formed between a city and its inhabitants. Over the course of an hour’s silent walk through a city, a participant and a guide form an immersive relationship with their surroundings through the simple acts of walking, seeing, and touching. Conducted in silence, a performer guides a ‘viewer’ along a specific trajectory while asking them to keep their eyes closed, opening them only on command. Radically enhancing one’s senses, the performance redistributes one’s usual perception of the city to the entirety of the body. ‘Walk, Hands, Eyes’ offers audiences the chance to see Edinburgh from a new perspective and for both guides and participants alike ‘Walk, Hands, Eyes’ offers the opportunity for a unique, intimate experience that is rarely experienced in daily life.

‘Walk, hands, Eyes (a City)’ is an ongoing exploration devised by Myriam Lefkowitz, having been performed around the world, the project is never the same. Myriam Lefkowitz’s off-site project ‘Walk, Hands, Eyes (Edinburgh)’ is funded by Creative Scotland and coincides with ‘The Extended Mind’ exhibition on view at Talbot Rice Gallery.
