Letters To Fancy X-Mixed Media Installation 2006
I used love letters from a long distance relationship to talk about the poetics of desire: "the space between two things". I collaborated with a painter who also wrote letters to an unrequited lover, together we wrote to eachother, our drawings , sculpture and paintings also wrote love letters to each other. Our study of the love letter led to a mixed media Installation where silver dipped rose petals and scolls of letters hung from the sky. I created a costume of envelopes of the love letters never sent .I also wore textual wings in a second performance where I was attached to the paintings and sculptures and read our poetry accapella. We also manipulated a 16 mm film by hand painting, scratching, and adding text to the emulsion.
