MERRITT BECKNELL + LAURISSA WIDRICK

Threshold


2020
Installation


Both artists in this collaboration are endlessly interested in the creation process as a means to face trauma as well as confront the forces of that trauma. The creation of this piece acts as a ritual celebrating the personal transformation of those who have survived oppressively controlling religious systems. It is an altar designed to worship the agency we all have within us to create our Selves, for our Selves; a sacred space for both reverence and defiance in the face of such a system.
