body of sand: reckoning

the body of sand image.stephanieblack

body of sand was the final outcome from a three-month process to create work for ‘Into the New’ supported by New Territories, the International Festival of Live Art Scotland. This was a trilogy of performance, installation and sound experimentation that took place over three nights of the festival. The work shifted and transformed along with my own body looking closely at my own socio-political heritage, identity and Eastern upbringing.


Part three of this series, body of sand: reckoning, uses glass towered canisters, red wine, gold coins and copper wire crafted together in the performance space to create a personal landscape. The objects are investigated over a 30 minute period while the artist’s mouth is bound. A presentation of beauty and the power of feminine gestures rooted in Eastern and Western cultures.
