Obeisant to Anathema, 2013

Body, Wood, Books, Food (Syrup, Oats, Flour, Jam, Heavy cream, Grain mustard, etc.), Dimensions Variable, Duration Variable


Inspired by Kafka's writings on education, this piece features a student attempting to consume the knowledge in the books he's been given but, finding them rotting away, he tries literally ingesting the pulp oozing from the bindings. He continues this unaware of the four figures straining to support him and his tabletop.

Performers include Patrick Scheid, Merlin Whitehawk, Maggie Rubin, Hugh Trimble, and John Kurzynowski.
