When the body is broken and continues to walk without pause, it mourns for stillness. The body is a vessel that remembers.
my pain is our song (2021) is a documented performance video work exploring memory and hidden scores of trauma in the body through repeated acts of cold water exposure. This site specific work is a response to grief and the subject's innate connectedness to the water, and to bodily discomfort to remember his body.
