Infirmary


Set to Louis Armstrong's "St. James Infirmary", Gwynne Bilski's 2014 work, Infirmary offers a macabre yet playful snapshot of bodies in a morgue experiencing a brief moment of re-animation.

Through an imagined post mortem state these bodies work through movement with an awkward weight, and explore the physical heft of their own unfamiliar exhausted limbs.
