Biography

On the surfaces of my being I percuss: feel everything.


Love and illness surface… instinct and drive and desire…
I ascribe real and not real narratives to these sensations. I use situation and gesture to articulate what is felt by my body, afloat in an ocean of memory and meaning.  Performance is the incision in time where I decidedly act in relationship all of this. I perpetuate repetition through word, movement, video, photo, drawing, letter writing and sound in order to locate the subtext narratives. I use fantasy and nostalgia as psychosomatic triggers. When a gesture is repeated, the triggers fluctuate. Uninterested in narrative climax, I perform subtleties layered on top of each other. I perform all of the information at once. It spreads out horizontally. I cannot tell you one thing at a time: simultaneous lament and rejoice. To bare complexity is to love everything and to do so demands transparency.
