I DISMANTLE revolves around a single costume: a kind of momentary
sculpture made by New York artist Lesley Dill. Constructed out of silk
and cotton material, the outfit at its widest measures 10 meters in
diameter. The language on the cloth is from an Emily Dickinson poem;
it reads, « A Single Screw of Flesh is All that Pins the Soul ».

This contemplative work unfolds in front of the skyline of southern
Manhattan. A barefoot women, dressed in black, move in a reverent,
hushed manner, bringing to mind a kind of burial ritual. The music,
« I Heard a Voice » composed by Thomas Edward Morgan
and Lesley Dill is sung by the Arts Nova Singers
from Boulder, Colorado, USA.
