Prepositions are not only linguistic devices but also hold performative and spatial potential. Since 1960s numerous walking performances and spatial practices are often accompanied and co-shaped by material or technological objects. Such performative narratives are co-shaped by chance, body encounters and/or technologies which extend poetics and politics. Objects have hidden lives and potential often embroidered into the everyday spatiotemporal fabric. Having as starting platform author’s art practice focused on walking/performance/site-specific arts, this paper aims to reflect on material, spatial and embodied entanglements that are informed by such prepositions (with, into, through) as well as on further intermedia translations of such repetitive, mobile and participatory actions across expanded installations, audiovisual and digital media. How bodies, objects and sites resonate towards personal/participatory scores? How such performances highlight autoethnographical narratives?
