Subtle Architectures Subtiles is a series of performances created for the city and intended for the public: a process wherein a performer places her body in hidden and abandoned city sites to magnify details, and engage public space socially and physically. The variation of this process proposed for the context of Granby, included a series of actions where participants were invited to join in these performative walks, and discuss their relationship to the site and context. Incorporating these stories into her gesture vocabulary, Howes then revisited locations throughout the city to perform these actions as part of an accumulative archive of gestures.
