Durational performance / Stone, Speech
Monoliths rigidly force us into an outside perspective and guard the secrets that lurk within. Unable to experience what it is to dwell within solidity, we invent spirits that do it for us. Rocks, however, linger motionless as life passes by.
This performance draws on Jacques Derrida, using linguistic monsters to address the monstrosities we assume to reside in a rock. It is an invitation to enter the realm between subject and object and thereby, as Roland Barthes attests, truly become specters.
