This ember state

This ember state

Commissioned and produced by Asia Society as part of the Creative Common Ground Initiative


This ember state deconstructs Indian classical music through the pussy, using the myth of the self-immolating Hindu goddess Sati and the idea of dark matter.

Moving fragments of tradition through voice and flesh, the work sculpts and dissolves forms at the physical and psychic border between inside and outside.

Premieres April 13-14 and April 20-22 at 2018 at Asia Society's Aron Gallery in New York City.
