On Paper

Dixon Place, Franklin Furnace
Released: 2015
Format: Performance
Country: USA

On Paper questions and critiques the criteria used to determine who is a success. Professional, creative, and personal achievements and aspirations are read out loud and positioned on a wall or on the ground, based on the importance given to them by the Day Job. Mirroring the judgment of success and failure, the performer’s body will rise and fall. The performance transforms a pristine white space into a complicated, crumpled, soiled area – much like the career of an artist with two careers.
