still birth / still breath (2009)

Performance documentation

TV monitor image

Abstract

still birth / still breath depicts a monstrous birth scene in which the unborn, suspended in time, discovers her own reflection only to be alienated by it and agonizingly reject it, all within a single breath stretched to an excruciating length. The audience is forced to confront their own demons, their own images entangled with that of the tortured unborn in the tv monitors held by the passive twin-headed embodiment of time.
