"everyday at five" performance by the artist; the wiping of a mirror, every day at 5 pm, the "witching hour" for mothers and families.
I construct anecdotal narratives through video, performance art and sculpture which reveal universal themes of humanity that acknowledge that we are fleeting and changing beings. The daily struggles, emotions, and situations of family and home are the text that I draw inspiration from. The work emphasizes process, chance, time, endurance, and repetitive obsession to reinforce these themes.
Through the medium of video I perform the everyday gestures that might occur in the home; icing a cake, wiping a mirror, nurturing with cooking, decorating and stitching. These narratives conflate the lines between the practices of life, art and the domestic.
My sculptural work is composed of domestic materials; icing, gingerbread, doilies, curtains, and mirrors. The mirror exists in the work as identity, stillness, a look into the now as well as reflection upon the past. The icing sculptures represent a repetitive obsession evident in the gesture of celebrations
