Snowfall in September

Performance with two arm-knitted nets (First net: 30ft long, 10ft wide. Second net: circular, 10ft in diameter), white cotton yarn, 2018. 

 

Performance, documenting the process of taking off a large arm-knitted net that was worn on my body for 11 days in a row. This durational performance focused on the process of grief and the discomfort ongoing grief has caused for me. The net worn on my body began as an entity that comforted me. After 10 days of wearing the net, I awoke in the middle of the night with the net tightly wrapped around my neck. The safety net I had created became a trap. The process of removing the net left me cold, but free.
