GIVING Health & Fitness Advice — TALKING — LISTENING

Aigeen2

COMING SOON:

MENDING and other verbs are being collected, remembered, performed, videotaped, projected on walls
then re-performed, re-videotaped, re-projected on walls
and then re-re-performed, re-re-re-videotaped, re-re-projected … etc….
similar to creation of geographical strata (i.e. coal)
by pressures of time, weight, history.

VERB WOMAN is creating an essay about creation/disintegration.

A DANCE OF FORGETTING
momdancing
We are always Forgetting. Disintegrating.
Our shared and contested histories
personal,  community, official (?) history of country or art practices.
As I  develop VERB WOMAN
I realize this work is drawn from and dedicated to my mother
who recently died from Alzheimer’s.
