body of work

The artists and the workers are those more exposed to the consequences of a drastic change, the social and economic collapse. While both of them are needed, they are vulnerable and the first to be dismissed. 

Shot during the pandemic while focusing mostly on the work around the house and construction I have realised the intersections and polarisation of the two. Artists are asked for “bodies of work” while art is not considered work and the hard work in construction, painting, drilling, cutting is not considered art - even though artists emerged from its labour and both the art and the work are demanded to be beautiful and sometimes utilitarian at the same time.

The video focuses on the work itself and the sounds that a body at work makes.

USA versus...

mixed-media performance collaboration with Sarah Culkin, Stacey Cann

as part of Hibernaculum Pop-up Show by The Works Arts Society Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, 2017

Walls can both protect and isolate. In different configurations the wall offers different amounts of stability, protection, and isolation for each performer. They sometimes use the wall to isolate themselves from each other, and sometimes build the wall together to protect them from the audience. 

This work is about protection as well as vulnerability. It uses humour and absurdity to confront real issues of protection, isolation, and building barriers.

Setting Glass Adrift embodies, through performance as well as its visual representation, tacit dialogues that happen between different bodies, spaces and surfaces, attempting to question the assumed clarity behind everyday interactions.
