ATTIC // 2022

The third part of the House of Mind Trilogy, ATTIC, follows Girl Gods, which was the ‘basement’ of the House, and was about women and rage. The first work, House of Mind, was a large-scale installation with performance at its center. ATTIC is the top of the house and will explore visions of violence, beauty, and the Afterlife.

ATTIC investigates rape culture. The sexual assault of young women and their often-downward spiral into destruction and suicide threads throughout the work. In ATTIC, the movement is based on falling, almost hitting the floor, but regaining balance. The visual environment will be stark, disheveled and dark—on top of which will be large bright areas. This environment alludes to the ‘afterlife,’ in which the survivor imagines safety and relief.

The piece will premiere in 2022.
