dwell.

dwell. was originally performed at the Banff Centre. This project draws upon notions of the abject, and how they connect with my Northern background. I am interested in investigating my relationship to Northern methods of making; the way the body was involved as a tool, as a direct and connected way to perform the work. I utilize my own body’s intimate ‘language’ of licking and ritual to perform dwell.-- an act mostly relegated to lovers or mothers cleaning the faces of their young. This performance involved the creation of ’dwellings’ akin to nests or igloos to cover existing elements of the environment, and in a futile act of rescue; protection, coping with an anxiety surrounding impending harm. What remains are the artifacts, disintegrating shells.
