PRACTICING RESPONSABILITY / POUR VICTORIA STANTON, RACHEL ECHENBERG, SANDRA JOHNSON ET SYLVIE COTTON

Ateliers Belleville, Montréal, 2019

Crée pour l'événement SurvivÂmes, cette pièce puise dans les archives de VIVA! Art Action. À partir de photos,  artefacts, entrevues et mémoires affectives, je cite et détourne plusieurs actions de collègues performeuses. La nouvelle suite d’actions est une tentative de prise de responsabilité émotive, to take accountability for breaking our own hearts sometimes.

So there’s something about the wielding of power which is not always easy
And which can make us extremely uncomfortable and aware of our position and our particular role
That we own
that we have trouble owning
when we do have power
when we don’t have power…
Kind of all those things play into it
and again I feel that it also plays into a kind of approaching and a feminist…
hum…
foundation.
