Lashes, 2014

to and fro

Artspace Aotearoa, Auckland

A collaborative series of performances with Julia Croucher.

For Beauty Binds, we took symbols of femininity and exaggerated them to the point of a grotesque performance of gender. Lashes was performed at the opening of to and fro; we were connected together by our eyelashes – strand by individual strand – for the duration of the event. We moved slowly around the gallery, interrupting the space with our joined bodies.

Durational performance, artificial hair, eyelash extension glue.
