Performance with Charcoal
By Brianna Baurichter
See her work in WTP Vol. V #4
“Against Self-Sabotage” is a three-part performance utilizing drawing and dance. Part one consists of covering a space in charcoal. Part two, titled Commune (Intermission), invites viewers to join me in whittling down charcoal to be added to a bowl of water. Part three attempts to erase the charcoal from a space.
