NOMINATED FOR TOP 5 TIME-BASED CATEGORY DURING ARTPRIZE 10
Friday September 7th - Sunday October 5th, 2018
Bend Gallery will be exhibiting Consequence for ArtPrize 10, a video performance by Brianna Lynn Hernandez Baurichter.
Vulnerability, hybridity, and ritual inform my practice through their intimate, interconnected, and cyclical nature. These core elements guide my developing body of work, Anticipatory|Después, which captures the complex layers of trauma, dying, and grief through a caregiver’s eyes. Each piece presents a looped scenario which is constantly evolving yet remaining stagnant in any sense of progress. The body is utilized as an active site of physical and emotional affliction of the dying, the caregiver, and at times the two concurrently. Consequence depicts fulfillment of my desire as a caregiver to make my environment reflect the brokenness of my mother's body and space to absorb my anguish without consequence.
