Uro‑ (clay)
Uro is about the weight of depression
> (rebirth, awakening from sleep)


In this durational performance, the artist interacts with clay and water on her body and canvas. The weight of the clay becomes a force that she works with and against over the six hours of the performance. Sitting on the body as a weighty, damp material, it becomes a solid foundation and morphs the body.
