Boundaries of self

Marker on body and ground, 2021

The performance investigates the boundaries of the felt sense of self. Where do we start and end? What am I what is other? Yet, looking closely, I fail to find the line.

A short 30min version (partly shown in the featured video) was performed at the Mothership Saloon and a 3-hour long duration version at Noosphere arts. Created during a 6-week Residency in Greenpoint, New York City. 

Part of a group of works, see the drawing Boundaries of self.

Linescapes of imperfection

Mixed media on canvas, 210 x 400cm, 2020

This solo performance is an evolution of the Linescapes of imperfections series of drawings. The body is used to its full reach on a large stretch of canvas. 

Not perfect. Fear of failure, perfectionism, meditation, pain, bodily restrictions. A set of rules in which there is no failure, whatever happens, is meant to happen. Mistakes are exactly what they should be. I follow the preceding line to the best of my ability, rise, and repeat. The piece grows, the mistakes reproduce and expand by my body's imperfections and mind, like a fingerprint of me.

Letting go of the outcome, focusing on the moment, as a counter practice to today's shattered shallow attention economy. 

Performed over an exhibition period of 24 days.

Total of 45 hours, longest consecutive session 5hours.
