altær-BFA final show
“Altær”, my most recent solo exhibition, consisted of a 16ft pedestal covered with thousands of cleaned and empty eggshells. The names of the mothers, from the egg breakfast, were played on a sound piece in which I recited each name. The participants were able to take an eggshell and place it into a large white nylon ring, where they would mimic the projected video of others placing shells into the ring. I also performed the piece wearing a white dress, walking to the beats of the names, and forming a ritual atmosphere. In each of these works I have aimed to create a strong relational aspect.
