Fiskehjell: 54 Stones

Installation and Performance 

 

 

This is video documentation of the performance "54 Stones", performed at George Mason University on April 28, 2014. The original performance was approximately 25 minutes. This is an edited version of the performance, now approximately 5 minutes. "Fiskehjell" is a site specific installation based on the development of ideas and emotions from my time in Norway, the land of my foremothers. The forms are constructed from flax, bamboo and natural materials which embody my personal and subjective experience. The narrative space "54 Stones", preformed in conjunction with "Fiskehjell", meditates on ideas of collection, ritual, loss, and remembrance.

 

Below are photographs of the performance and installations site.
