Other Half Orbit
In 2007, Rojas Contreras briefly lost her memory in an accident, an event that inspires questions about self, identity and personal history in this performance. For Other Half Orbit, the two performers lay half-submerged in a wide pool of water, the images of their bodies completed by their reflections, speaking of half-remembered moments, dreams and memory loss; the sound of their voices passes through both water and air.
This performance is part of the White Hot Lamp Black, on view February 7 – March 8, 2014 at Southern Exposure. Documentation of Jeremiah Barber and Ingrid Rojas Contreras's performance will be on display as part of the exhibition after February 21.
