What to do with All These Feelings
How do feelings shape our experience of the world? How do we record and remember them? ‘What to do with All These Feelings’ is a one on one performance encounter that invites visitors to sit with the artist for a conversation. By examining the role of conversation in relational art, this performance installation investigates how ‘affect’ shifts from present to past as it is captured and examined by its subjects. Blurring the boundaries between past/present and self/others, this work asks both how affective states are produced between bodies in live encounters.
