March 2012, Performance and Photographs.
Two Lace Tablecloths
Assistant Photographer Suzanne Huffman, sister
I traveled to the Gulf of Mexico in March 2012, to the beach I grew up playing on. I took the dry clay-caked tablecloth from the installation and a clean one. The clean table cloth was my maternal grandmother's. Working onsite at my geographic roots and connecting to my lineage allowed grounding, cleansing & Rebirth for me, and this is captured in the performance and imagery. I enacted a ritual cleansing. I also connected to innocence through playing & exploring, and reveling in the beautiful expressions found in light, water, wet fabric, color. Something new (art) is created, born. Raw, wet, red and new. Glistening, alive.
