On May 25, 2019, I participated as a hook suspension practitioner in a collaborative installation organized by The Skin Project and featuring Haus Serpens, Cellista, & Operafication in performance. I facilitated for Luna Duran, who was invited to embody the role of ancestral trauma within the larger installation. I was assisted by Tim Gerdes, Evelyn Svendsen, and Jessie Sparkles.
“The Skin Project, created in 2015 by Orbán Isma, is a collective of suspension practitioners, fabricators, visual artists, and makers of all kinds focused on creating geometric rope sculptures that represent a larger narrative. In the 5th annual installation, curated and originated by Jessica Irvin, The Skin Project will examine the obfuscation of gender and explore humanity’s interpretation of gender by way of rope sculpture, body suspension, and sound in Living Entropy.”
