Knotted Arms

Stories that have never been told, remaining hidden or forgotten, appear embodied in the knot of arms, the limbs carrying them. This notion relates to the idea of body memory and how unprocessed emotions and trauma can be stored in the body over years and even a lifetime. The arms contain some of these stories that together form a psychological tangle, effectively a blockage, while a sense of movement and interaction within the hands brings a possibility of transformation and moulding.
