Stephen G.A. Mueller | Starting Over
February 13 – March 28, 2015
Performance and endurance artist Stephen Mueller returns to Latitude 53 with Starting Over. An installation developed around a video projection, Starting Over features documentation of a performance Mueller endured last year–the act of slowly removing and carefully storing each of his beard hairs. Mueller asks us–do our bodies absorb our memories? If we remove pieces of ourselves, can we tear the memories out, as well? And where exactly does the 'performance' in 'performance art' lie?
