About the Performances

A Bird of a Different Feather
A performance by Molly Hess

The little things in life help us get through the long days, weeks and years of our lives and bring meaning to otherwise unimportant objects through memories, personal connections etc. This performance involves creating a new lawn ornament with gallery visitors outside the gallery on the front lawn.

Untitled (Paper Bags)
A performance by Rebecca Henriksen

How do we organize our belongings in the spaces where we live? Henriksen explores notions of remnant, ephemerality, memory, the body, and materiality in her work. Drawing on personal memories of love and pain as well as textual sources, she creates work at the intersection of embodiment, identity, and endurance.
