ARTIST NOTE

A Trilogy on Absenting presents simple live performances exploring absenting, withdrawals, and disengagements. In Iceboat I row a boat of ice until it melts and releases me into the waters. Minds to Lose (live performance titled Petting Zoo) weighs the categories of human and animal, all of whom enjoy a temporary respite from human interference because of their loss of consciousness. Leaf Fall shows the denuding of a tree over the course of a single day, leaving behind an autumnal sprig, made special through the day’s relentless process of subtraction.
