6HRS is a performative work in which the artist explores the every day nuances of repositioning the body. Sitting in a two foot by two foot bed of cement the body is repositioned over the course of an hour- the time it takes for cement to cure. The female form molds and imprints onto the cement as opposing the tradition of male artists carving a woman out of stone.
1080p digital video, latex gloves, plastic
6HRS (video) displays documentation of the artist’s performance creating one of the cement works. Gloves, used in the process of mixing the cement, are positioned over the monitor, concealing the body.
