Extending Relations

Duration: 30 minutes

Performance with hot glass and wood Performance with Maria Bang Espersen. We each gather small amounts of hot glass and walk into the performance space. We touch the glass together and walk in separate directions. A glass string is stretched between us and extends as we continue to walk around the space. We walk between and around the wooden markers, wrapping the glass around the poles to change direction. This process continued for 30 minutes. Everyday spatial movements are marked with the glass strings, bringing a physicality to ephemeral actions. The glass traces are quickly destroyed and remade though, bringing ephemerality to sculpture and material. Hierarchy and value in the work become incalculable, leveling body, material, space, and action as equal elements.
