Presence (2014) Video Performance Series

In each of these hour long video works, the artist has a simple directive: be present, breathe, provide warmth, comfort. The performances are a retaliation to the idea of the gallery being a place of isolation, with these simple human gestures personifying the wall, but more directly creating a traceable interaction between space and performance. The videos were played on a screen hung in the same spot in which the performances take place.
