This Intervalla issue on Loss and survivals: on the transmission and reconstruction of artistic gestures brings together articles that explore mimicry, transfer and resurgence of gestures in artistic practices. The project has its roots in a panel session organised by the TETI Group (Textures and Experiences of Trans-Industriality) at the 2014 conference of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies at the University of Canberra. The authors look at different types of artistic practices, from performance art to painting and architectural drawing, thereby offering an insight into modes through which gestures can be worked upon as revealing materials in artistic production. The volume combines studies stemming from art historical perspectives, as well as artistic research and aesthetic reflections by artists. In doing so, it aims to shed light onto some fruitful pathways through which gestures can be purposefully conveyed by contemporary artistic strategies to reveal hidden textures of our individual and collective beings.
