You know what it feels like, don’t you?
Every part seems to dissipate and fracture,
You feel hollow and heavy and tight and
You numb yourself to try and forget.
But your body remembers.
Your skin still remembers.
Parts of them linger,
And you try but it becomes a struggle to
remember
What you were like before.

As a child I would roll around in the mud. I climbed trees, ran as fast as I could and I wasn’t afraid of falling. I feel the earth move, I feel the tumbling down is an investigation into the relationships we have with our surroundings, and if our current pace and place of life has had an effect on our ability to connect with the spaces we inhabit.

Amy McLachlan Sayer is a Glasgow-based live artist who was raised amidst elds and foxes. Her arts practice looks into how our pasts echo our presents and futures, our relationship to the ancient, and how we still haven’t learnt. She has worked in collaboration with a variety of artists, including Nic Green, Fish and Game, Untitled Projects, Glas(s) Performance, Janice Parker, Stephen Skrynka for GDIY, and Dan Monks as part of the Merchant City Festival.
