Action for Lethbridge. February 06, 2016, 22 min.

Dr. Foster James Penny Building Gallery

Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada

This action grew out of a desire to reconcile feelings of unsettledness and to create a recuperative position in relation to change and the unknown. In this action I employed a local red clay as a transformative material…first as a sculptural medium, and as it dried and peeled off the wall, a mark-making or drawing medium. The trace left by the crumbling dry clay and fallen fragments were left as a 2-week long installation (Feb 6-26), as part of the group show For the Time Being.
