My Tale On A Fish's Body (2024)

A landscape of bodies, nothing that didn’t come from this earth.
They move as one, as much as they move as individuals.
The space they occupy transforms with movement o
ver time.
History is layered in the landscape surrounding us. Our stories unravel as we watch the shapes and symbols. As we listen and as we feel. Memories are layered in structures that the body holds for us.
Our stories are projected in the room; not spoken, not told, they are bodily. Here they expel generations, continuous cycles of abuse deeply stagnant.

Bodies, nothing that didn’t come from this earth. Like a forest of trees, whose roots are supported by the land, even in the midst of radical changes. Wild fires. Earth encompasses us all, even through destruction and time.
