IN MY FEAR I SAW ONLY MYSELF AS I BEHELD THE APPOINTED LOBBY
Duo show with Dade Orphan and Jeremy Sims
This show explores an aesthetic of fear and paranoia by identifying with an object or metaphorically empty, curated space. While it is common for many people to have experiences akin to some level of objectification by walking down the street, by doing one's job or being intimate with a partner the scary part can be the realization and anxiety that follows. A person who experiences such anxiety might find themselves relating to the stated title of the show, however the goal of this show is to present the beauty that can still be found in every imperfect or chaotic moment. Those of us who are trained to deal with our anxieties and fears have various ways of externalizing them into something that isn't just a feeling but can be touched, looked at or spoken to; however for the writer, ones internalized anxiety comes out in the form of objects appearing to “misbehave”.
