durational performance, dimensions variable
presented as part of One Night Stand performance art series at Eastern Edge Gallery
Ingrown is a durational performance during which I pluck body hair systematically, strand by strand, seal in medical grade vials, and catalogue in a ledger based on body part, zone, quadrant, and catalogue number. During the performance I encourage visitors to hang out and talk. During this (first) iteration, we had long chats about gender, sexuality, and the regulation of bodies.
I gratefully acknowledge the support of the City of St. John’s and the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council in the creation of this work.
