Interior Portrait (2017)
Single Channel Video, No Sound, 1:50 sec
In this performance, I attempt to foreground that aspect of human nature that is always split and in-between. By pressing against the mirror, I enact an archetypal struggle that is both internal and external. The body positioning is based on a specific childhood moment that was both difficult and memorable, that I continue to be ambivalent about. The duration of the work is dictated by bodily endurance.
