Some Hands To Hold You Table-top Action

30.00

Some Hands To Hold You was originally commissioned by Performing Medicine as an after dinner 'action' for a Wellcome humanities conference at Manchester's science museum in 2012 and now you can buy it as a kit to perform at home! 

Exploring several ideas simultaneously the piece draws attention to the prehensility of hands in relation to the passing of time, the moment and mortality.

Each package is hand-made by Sheila and contains an ampoule with contents and small momento packet. 

You will also recieve a page of instructions, some safety glasses and some tweezers (or magnet) to help you 'draw out' the tiny watch hands once the ampoule is broken. These are then placed in the packet to make your own Momento mori.

N.B This art-work is made from glass and is bought, and the action undertaken, at the buyers own risk.

Please note that this art-work contains a glass ampoule which you will need to break in order to make the momento mori. It is of course possible to buy this art-work and decide to not break the ampoule!
