Ground Level

Amber McCartney is a dancer who often uses her body’s liquidity to disappear into eerily beautiful, waking nightmares. Her practice incorporates prosthetics, mask-making, film and practical special effects to create augmented, foreign bodies.

For Tiny Infinite Deaths she’s chosen to embody a maggot. As a maggot, she will be your guide to the in-between—the space that exists between death and afterlife.

Her Cronenburg-esque cocoon will be created under a glow provided by celebrated light sculptor Cerith Wyn Evans. Let yourself be beckoned in.
