Departure Study of Mother/land Fabric
by Annie Heath
Was forgetting a calculated effort? How can you hold onto what you cannot recall? Heath’s solo performance seams pieces of movement, text, and video; exposing her deepest fantasies of an unknown mother. Suspended bojagi pieces create a fantasied womb space where fragments of partial truths and unverified facts circulate, slowly imprinting a possibility of embodied “folklore” memory.
