In “A Sense of Direction” the audience is invited to make rubbings (frottage) of small, clay plates spread across the space with the provided paper and pencils. The plates contain subtle pictographic representations of the chapters of a text, which describes a story of singing clay that was dug up and collected by the artist, after getting wind of a rumour. The walls, painted with clay, mark the depth of the actual pit that was dug in order to find it. The sounds that can be heard throughout the space are recordings of the clay singing.
