Breathing, 2011
Video documentation of the performance
Original running time: 01:10:00, (Video excerpt: 07:50)

at Center for the Performance Research, Brooklyn, New York

This performance / installation visualizes the act of cleansing the memories through a combination of motion and breathing. Twenty-four clear vessels are arranged at equal intervals in a circle and placed on white sumi ink paper. Each vessel is filled with clean water, and is contaminated by black ink throughout the performance. The performer circles counter-clockwise, to symbolically undo time, and attempts to purify the water.
