DOING/THINKING RESIDENCY

A(mend)ed

 

Doing as a way of thinking is an idea based on philosopher Will Daddario, where “doing of artistic and intellectual expression” merits as much attention as the physical result. With this reprioritization in mind, the Doing/Thinking Residency challenges conventional ideas about how artists are expected to exhibit work by shifting the focus from artwork-as-result to artwork-as-process.

In keeping with the spirit of this “Do/Think Tank” residency, A(mend)ed evolved through trial and error, success and failure during the six weeks in residence at Wedge Projects.  As my immersion into mourning research expanded, rituals based on personal loss gave way to an increased focus on the socio-political climate of the moment. Regardless of our difference’s grief is a common ground. By acknowledging this commonality, my work became a way to connect individuals in an intimate and regenerative space for healing.
