Exhibition & Performance 

Performance allows us to enter vulnerable spaces. We stay open to the art and audience. We have a loose trajectory, but allow movement and energy to guide us. There is always alchemy in live performance as the relationship between form and formless unfolds for both artist and witness. We believe our performance clears different spaces, expectations, and old stories. This particular piece spoke to the fragile fertility of our planet and the mirrored body of a woman. Mothering the earth and herself, this slow ritualistic performance includes pushing out a large circle of sand with hand brooms. This growing expansiveness gives us space between our thoughts and feelings, allowing for pause and clarity of action.
