BABY DON'T GO
New York, NY
Referencing the 1960's pop song by the same name, BABY DON'T GO was an 8 hour durational performance documented using some of the only remaining 20x24 Polaroid film. For an entire work day the artist and her mother dressed as Sonny Bono and Cher, embrasing each other to question notions of nature vs. nurture, and mortality vs materiality.
Captured like a puzzle in a grid the artist's embrace, a token of affection, becomes a laborious gesture once durational.
