Platform examines intrapsychic space through durational performance, struggle and failure. Mirroring the impossibilities of fixed gender narratives, the familiar posture of the high-heeled foot and the secondary sex characteristic of hair covered legs are exploited together in strenuous meditation. Here the lens mediates the artist, the act and the audience in a suspension of place and time. The wooden platforms are evocative of the transformative applications of gender onto objects as separators of bodies and identities. Emphasis is placed on the mechanics of the body as it labors to sustain its footing, to concretize its relationship to physical space by proxy of prosthesis, as it balances a sociopolitical platform
