Scrubbing
Scrubbing

 

Scrubbing operates within three distinct actions and frameworks. Each action contrasts its predecessor in concept and gesture. Firstly, the body is fully coated in a bucket of paint, matching that of the walls of the space. The body is then slowly dragged across a wall of the space, simultaneously caring for, and disrupting the space. A large sheet of clear acrylic is then activated by writing excerpts from the artist's notes on the function of the body, and the queer and non-binary body as interpreted by the audience. The writings are erased by the body as they are finished. Finally, the body faces a blank wall holding a piece of charcoal, with one strong light source behind it. The body then confronts its shadow, tracing it against the light, attempting and failing to capture its own shadow.  Once the cycle is complete, it begins again. As this piece was developed to be durational, it invites viewers to depart and return as the work unfolds.
