Strings Attached


PERFORMANCE

Performed at  Berkeley Art Center, this piece is a humorous physical play on the phrase No Strings Attached. What do we mean by no strings attached? What are we without these strings to family and community? A ten foot long rectangle box filled with raked gravel is set and the strings are attached to the boulders and to Alex’s body. Slowly leaning back, her body a rigid plank, strings slowly snapping under the pressure finally the body hits the ground.

Explored also privately in the studio with tape and string. Alex asks the question around the female body, and the unmonumental act of a woman alone in her studio with tape and string rather. In a city surrounded by the great spanning bridges that link the bay area by cable and steel.
