Produced during a three-month artist residency at the Cité internationale des arts, Paris, 'Some spaces between us’ presents a playful engagement with the expectations, experiences and sightseeing behaviours of the contemporary tourist. In the video, two mimes visit the Luxembourg Gardens to perform a slow dance picnic fantasy that gleefully appropriates Parisian stereotypes presented in tourism advertising and popular culture.
