performance for single channel video loop 2017

voiceover text:

this is a true story

stories are part of each other like water dipped out of water

you can look away but everything that happens still is

it if hurts you to look you can close your eyes and listen

sometimes they break our bodies

sometimes they throw our bodies away

sometimes we break our bodies, because we are also them

we’re their mothers and their sisters and their daughters

sometimes, they throw our bodies away

maybe so they wont have to look at us

maybe because they cant see us

maybe they’re afraid of what we carry

afraid of what we’re sharpening

listen

we are the edge between worlds

we are the overlap

we’re the hole in the sky

we’re the flood

we watch you between our legs

we watch you crawl and run away

we watch you hide and take and push and love and hurt

we watch you between our legs

are you afraid of what we carry?

are you afraid of the hole in the sky?

are you afraid of the flood?

you afraid of what we’re sharpening?

we are the edge between worlds.
