Given Over to Want (2009)

Sculpting the body with tape, shadow-play, and boxed wine all provide material for the exploration between human want, both natural and contrived. The performance deals with the themes of transformation and desire. The precariousness of citizenship crumbles into an image as primordial as it is hungry, both fully human and fully alien.
