Linescapes of imperfection
Mixed media on canvas, 210 x 400cm, 2020
My first 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.
