Meet Me Where I'm At (2015)
May 8, 2015
Intense preoccupations with self-concept, desire, and tribalism are the points of departure for my recent installation and performance work. I tackle these complex personal landscapes in the studio similar to my approach outside of that space: through endurance, perspective, minor successes, immediate pleasures, Pho Binh lunch buffets, constant longing, and inevitable failure. This is all a journey. Utilizing pre-existing cultural objects, movement, body fluid, space, and meditative processes, I continue to simultaneously grapple with and reprieve my poly-consciousness. Ultimately, this show serves as a temporal sanctuary where these performative self-journeys and self-reconciliations shall unfold.
