Re-collection (a Self-portrait)



16 minutes

Performed November 14, 2019 at Ignite Gallery in Toronto, ON.

A performance involving a series of manipulations of prints of the artist’s own image. Expanding on previous aesthetic and conceptual experiments, this work investigates both the tangibility and ephemerality of identity. Through breaths in and breaths out (both human and machine), the image gets transferred, accumulated, destroyed, celebrated, gathered, reassembled and abandoned.
