Conduit

Performance, 2018

In recent years my practices of drawing and performance have become mixed up.  In CONDUIT I start with the directive, “Draw a straight line and follow it,” offered by Fluxus artist La Monte Young in Compositions 1960. As I pull the paper off the roll and through my dress the rigid paper yields to the grasp of my hands, the curve of my waist and the arc of my shoulder as I guide it into the space in front of my body.  The consequence of my actions and the resulting drawing is the performance.  A straight line records a curved course.

Costume construction: Crystal Ann Brown
