In being alone (on a swing) together (in a field), we find a condition of the social that is... 'the event of a thread'. Ann Hamilton's new work fills the Armory's Drill Hall with a visceral and literal poetry. Set into motion by visitors, a field of swings, a massive white cloth, a flock of homing pigeons, spoken and written texts, and transmissions of weight, sound, and silence weave through this expansive space to create a fabric of experience.
