Gripping Wrists is a screening of artists’ moving image works programmed by artist-led initiative Tendency Towards. Focusing variously on the production of desire, rituals and mechanisms, as well as the influence of mythology and storytelling on social constructs, the works in the programme share an interest in the narrative of communal spaces, exploring the conjunction of language and physical staging.

Gripping Wrists marks the first stage in a series of curatorial research projects that Tendency Towards is undertaking, that reflect on organisational and relationship structures within artist-led initiatives and their wider publics.
