A year long documentation of a walking performance
during the four seasons in Montreals public park.
The toy-like looking prostheses are made out of maple wood and leather.
These paradoxical extensions of the arms do not facilitate
the bodily movements.
On the contrary, they present grotesque attachments
that exemplify the very impossibility of undertaking
any unrestrained journey through time and space.
Walking with Arms is Kinga Arayas fourth video based on performance
with especially constructed bodily extensions.
The previous prosthetic videos are : Orthoepic Exercise,
Peripatetic Exercise (both from 1998),
and Exercising with Princess Headgear (Adjustable) (2000).
