Windcatcher & Gargoyles leads us down and up a twisting, staggered path, following a rambler that ends up in uncanny and unexpected destinations during her walk. Combining elements from Iranian, Islamic and Gothic horror literature together with local myths and legends from Calderdale, West Yorkshire, the work takes influence from Zār, a custom originating in cultures of the Horn of Africa and nearby regions of the Middle East, which personifies the wind(s) as a spirit(s) that can possess humans.
