mother's storyteller, 2019
Performance, five storytellers over five days
Nursing chair, modroc, acrylic paint, acrylic varnish, IKEA lamp, trimming, battery-operated lightbulb, acrylic hair, wool, laces and cardboard.
Spanning the length of five days, each day a new storyteller emerged wearing oversized shoes and an oversized head to tell a story. An at times nefarious, embittered character, over the course of the five days the storyteller ages as they narrate their life story.
Special thanks to storytellers Lily Hudson, Nan Zhu, Billy Sassi, Serena Swanson and Aidan Strudwick.
Stories available upon request.
