For the final three weeks of Part Three, Carolee Schneemann’s Infinity Kisses II shares the gallery with a new installation, Temple (20lb), by Miles Huston. A swath of wall-to-wall carpeting and a wearable, weighted blanket: layers articulating an envelope of pressure around the body drawn from principles of deep touch that have been adapted from observations on animals to soothe humans. In this way, the work’s vernacular is the firm hand run across the cat’s fur, the sweeping purr through the chest, a swaddle’s warm clutch—common terms of a haptic language shared amongst species.
